Buffalo Day at Chautauqua Institution, July 11

Date: July 11, 2017

Time: 12:00 Noon

The Buffalo Day Theme is “A Crisis of Faith? – An Opportunity for Reflection.” Residents of the Greater Buffalo region enjoy a FREE Afternoon Gate Pass for at Chautauqua Institution from Noon – 8:00 pm at the Eighth Annual “Buffalo Day @ Chautauqua – 2017. 

For decades, Chautauqua Institution has brought people of different faiths – and no faith – together for civil, enlightening dialogue. Building on that work, this week we dive even deeper into questions of identity, religion and community. Pew Research Center reports that religions are undergoing dramatic change: a decline in mainstream Christianity and practicing Judaism, demographic shifts pointing toward a growing Muslim population, and more young people than ever who claim no affiliation with any organized religion. Some detect crisis amidst these changes, but in this week we look to the possibilities. What impacts do shifting religious norms mean for other aspects of public life? How are churches reinventing themselves as moral centers of the communities they serve? Together, we imagine the future of faith and of religion as we have come to know it.
