One of Kanuga’s highlights each year, the 2018 Lansing Lee Conference will address the role of civil discourse in America. Featuring members of the United States House of Representatives (both Republicans and Democrats) along with nationally recognized voices from The Episcopal Church, this conference asks how we pivot from our current milieu to a place of cooperation and collaboration. In addition to plenary sessions where our representatives will share personally from their own stories, break-out workshops will include a variety of topics to equip attendees to be agents of goodness in the world. This conference is expected to be in high demand so early registration is suggested.

The annual Lansing Lee Conference honors the memory of Lansing B. Lee Jr. of Augusta, GA. Lee participated in many aspects of Kanuga’s programs and governance for more than 50 years. The conference focuses on the theme “Practicing the Faith” and explores different dimensions of that topic in the context of the world, nation, the Church and society. The Lansing Lee Conference is made possible by an endowment established by Natalie Lee and with major support from the Buford L. Bowen Endowment.

In collaboration with the Washington National Cathedral, The Center for Speaking & Listening at Sewanee: The University of the South, and the Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations.
