Three days before Thanksgiving, our November speaker, Bart Campolo, will offer advice for secular humanists on negotiating the holidays with religious family members. Bart comes equipped with family conflict experience. As a the son of the famous evangelical Christian preacher Tony Campolo, Bart became an evangelical Christian as a teenager.
Increasingly questioning his faith, Bart eventually "came out" as a non-believer to his father. The documentary film, Leaving My Father’s Faith, captures the spirit of the ongoing conversation about his father's faith, Bart's values, and the wisdom of loving people with whom you may seriously disagree.
A secular community builder, counselor and writer who currently serves as the Humanist Chaplain at the University of Cincinnati, Campolo’s work has remained focused on inspiring and equipping people to make the most of their lives by actively pursuing goodness and meaning in an openly secular way.
For more about Bart, read the 2016 New York Times article, The Evangelical Scion Who Stopped Believing.
