2023 Design for Freedom Summit



The great treasure of the Faith Initiative is our question: What is the shape of flourishing life? As human beings, we are purposeful creatures; everything we do is aimed at something we judge worthy of our humanity. This means taking seriously our differences even as we work to recognize shared values. In dialogue, we do our best to discern the sorts of lives we deem worthy of our shared humanity. And, knowing our vision is always limited, we nevertheless act courageously in the urgency of the moment.

Matthew Croasmun, Faith Initiative Director


By openly engaging one another in matters of profound importance—especially where we disagree—the programs in our Faith Initiative provide access to perspectives that encourage dialogue and reflection about what it means to live meaningful, purposeful lives.

Books on Faith & Meaning

These presentations introduce selections from the Faith & Meaning section of the Grace Farms Library. Spanning multiple religious and philosophical traditions, both ancient and contemporary, these texts encourage us to think critically about the meaning in our lives.


Invited broad audiences to explore open, gracious discourse around faith with Pastor Greg Zehner and guest speakers including Geshe Dhargey, a Buddhist Monk, and Dr. Kareem Adeeb, a Muslim Imam.


Established Grace Farms as a welcoming environment for reflection and contemplation, set apart from the pace of our daily lives, but responsive to the realities of the world around us
