Light in the Darkness: The Racial Justice Windows Project

The Cathedral’s Light in the Darkness windows replacement project will capture the resilience, faith and endurance of African Americans and our nation’s struggle with the original sins of racism and slavery. We hope these new installations tell a new, more inclusive story, and reflect the dignity of each beloved child of God.

The Marshall Plan: Democracy, Faith and America’s Role in the World

Seventy-five years ago, the United States did something extraordinary: It debited precious resources to rebuild a war-torn world. Acting out of both generosity and of self-interest, the nation undertook the Marshall Plan, a profound effort to create a safer, better, freer world. What are the lessons of this experience for America today? Is a divided country capable of big things? Can democracies truly rise to the challenges inherent to a world of appetite and ambition? A conversation with David Ignatius, Joe Scarborough, and Jon Meacham.
