Join us on Tuesday, April 17, from 2:30 to 4pm in the 3rd floor Library Apse for a discussion about the Quest for Prosperity.

What does it mean to think of prosperity in moral terms? It is the sense that our lives have meaning because we are part of a greater group that informs our identity, that expects us to balance our duties and rights in a way that is virtuous and considerate of others. It is a reasonable lived reality that fosters collaboration among neighbors and an appreciation that our accomplishments owe as much to unknown others as to our own effort. Only with a commitment to collaboration and cooperation and a transformation of notions of scarcity to those of abundance may the sufficient conditions for personal and communal prosperity be sensibly fulfilled.
