Honest to God: Congressional Chaplains

Tuesday, April 20, 2021 | 7:00pm

In partnership with the National Institute on Civil Discourse (NICD), Washington National Cathedral hosts Senate Chaplain Barry Black and House Chaplain Margaret Kibben for a conversation about ethical leadershipAs Chaplains, Black and Kibben have a unique relationship with elected officialsDean Hollerith and Mr. Keith Allred, Director of NICD, explore public service, the Golden Rule, insights from military chaplaincy, and the role of faith in fostering respect and healing amidst painful division.   

Washington National Cathedral presents Honest to God, an online series featuring wisdom leaders, theologians and others offering spiritual content for these times.   

Honest to God programs bring together people from different faith traditions to discuss how the values of their faith influence their work and leadership.  Our national life has been plagued in recent years by those who seek to tear down rather than to build up; to widen the divide instead of repairing the breach. Through intimate conversation and the sharing of stories, Honest to God speakers offer honesty, authenticity and faith at a time when our country is in dire need of such a generous gift. 

As an institution at the intersection of our country’s sacred and civic life, Washington National Cathedral seeks to be a trusted voice of moral leadership and a convener of important conversations in civic and religious life. In these events, we hope to bring inspiration and wisdom to people around the country seeking leadership grounded in love and compassion. 

Registrants will be sent a link to the event on April 20
