Arianna Huffington in the Rector's Forum THIS Sunday ... November 28th

The U.S. is in crisis.

“What were thought by many to be the ingredients of the good life — a job, a home, a secure retirement, a college education for your kids, and prospects for a brighter future for them — are no longer attainable simply by hard work and playing by the rules.”

Those are the words of All Saints’ friend, Arianna Huffington, who will be our guest in the Rector’s Forum Sunday, November 28.

Huffington is focusing her formidable intelligence, influence, and charisma on the hard truths and big ideas necessary for us to redefine "the good life." She is brutally honest about the as yet unfed hunger that propelled Barack Obama into the White House two years ago. She assesses it as a still unaddressed need for a public life of large purpose and a politics of moral and spiritual aspiration. In fact, she argues that our politicians are destroying the American Dream.

Huffington visits us this Sunday not only with her own criticism of the Obama Administration and the dysfunctional U.S. Congress, but also with six innovative solutions which start with combating the isolation generated by economic disorder, and end with holding our leaders accountable — asking them to seize the policy reins and stop waiting for the economy to magically "turn the corner" on its own.

Put your Thanksgiving into action by coming to learn from and be inspired by the founder of Huffington Post and author of the new book, Third World America: How Our Politicians Are Abandoning the Middle Class and Destroying the American Dream. Come and bring friends at 10:15 a.m. this Sunday. Copies of Arianna’s new book will be available for purchase.

If you cannot be in church on Sunday, please join us for the live stream of the Rector's Forum at 10:15 a.m.
