The Everything Happens Project with Dr. Kate Bowler is a public life and media initiative. The Project seeks to develop thicker language around suffering and loss and to foster vibrant communities around hope, grit, courage, generosity and resilience in the face of complicated realities. The project will consider the big questions: How do you nurture Christian faith in the midst of uncertainty? Can we engage, inform and enrich the lives of an engaged intellectual audience with conversations inspiring faith, spiritual insight, and virtue formation?
Through her podcast, writing, speaking, and public engagement, Dr. Bowler finds cross-disciplinary conversation partners to join her in thinking about wisdom in difficult seasons, and how we may suffuse our communities and our lives with lasting hope. Dr. Bowler is not merely providing information or an argument through her podcast. She is animating life's most profound questions for her engaged intellectual audience through narrative and relationship. She is giving her audience a reference point in which to examine their own experiences, beliefs, narratives and meaning systems, and to help them see religious faith and spiritual practices as more plausible.
With an eye toward ongoing sustainability, this Project will embark on an accelerated, 1-year strategic planning and networking process, produce 9 new podcast episodes targeting an engaged intellectual audience, revamp the website, and construct reliable organizational and financial structures for the continued health of the initiative.
More broadly, the Project hopes to foster an understanding and faith that endures a lifetime through good and evil, hardship and seasons of grace. We want to nurture substantial spiritual conversation in order to help people live undiminished in the face of difficult circumstances and ultimately flourish.
