The inaugural In Situ talk featured artist Janine Antoni and Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek exploring “How to Reasonably Believe in God.” The conversation was moderated by Sister Helen Prejean. A performance by Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir kicked off the event.

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine is pleased to have hosted this timely discussion, an expression of the Cathedral’s longstanding mission to provide a convening space for the important conversations of our time.
