Why Christ & Flourishing Exists

Through our Christ & Flourishing initiative, the Yale Center for Faith & Culture is building a movement founded on the conviction that Jesus Christ is the path and the paradigm of our shared humanity.

Rooted in the conviction that right relation to God is integral to human beings’ highest flourishing, the Christ & Flourishing initiative aims to develop and promote a new cultural apologetic rooted in the portrait of humanity’s proper relation to God found in the life and person of Jesus Christ.

We built this initiative on the conviction that Jesus is the paradigm of living a life that is worthy of our humanity. This is the substance of our hope for the world and the foundation of our mission to foster truth-seeking conversations across the deep lines of difference that divide us today.

Our Last Encounter

Hong Liang remembers Jürgen Moltmann, reflecting: "Everything has a beginning and an end. Prof. Moltmann and I knew each other for twenty years—years that seemed to fly by. If you can hear me now, I want to tell you what I told you the last time we saw each other: 'Thank you—without you, I would not be the person I am today.'"

"There are not many classes like this one at Yale Divinity School. It was thoroughly theological while being completely practical. It developed my intellectual ability and my personal faith ... One of the best courses at YDS."
