Raising hope among the young

 |  NCR Today

A major interfaith event aimed at attracting young adults is scheduled for Nov. 19 at the student center of the University of Chicago campus in Chicago.

It is titled "Ignite Hope: Here. And Now." and will feature "a conversation on the Kingdom of God" and explore ways of thinking and acting to reshape this world, said Greg Pierce, president of ACTA Publishing and a promoter of the event.

Pierce is the author of "The World as It Should Be: Living and Acting in the Here-and-Now Kingdom of God," published by Loyola Press.
