Show Notes

Our country was founded on the premise that all of us have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But what is happiness and where do we find it? The world around us encourages us to look within, to find our passions and pursue them. But this doesn't always work. Why are we so restless? Because we’re pursuing happiness in the wrong direction.

At the conclusion of John’s talk, co-hosts Center for Public Christianity Executive Director Josh Chatraw and New City Fellows alumnus Micah Vandegrift are joined by Seth Berman, also a New City Fellows alumnus, to reflect on John’s teaching and discuss how it applies to daily life. So, keep listening!
