Exploring how responsible faith can enhance strong, connected community
YTI believes that a thriving community and vibrant, dynamic church can meet one another on the common ground shared by real-world knowledge, enlightenment, and God’s love.
In our Tipping Point Lectures, we bring together different perspectives—Christian and non-Christian, spiritual and secular—on pivotal issues in search of greater spiritual and personal understanding. We invite the general public to join us for these discussions of topics ranging from biblical insights to mindfulness, parenting to jazz, science to the great outdoors.
Strong faith comes from sufficiently examined views. The Tipping Point Lectures are where the practice of discovery aims to inform a more enlightened and loving understanding of truth.

Christians & Politics for a Radical 21st Century (Don’t Drink the Kool-Aid!)
Christianity in America has always been divided—first into denominations, then sects, and now splintered politics. The evolution of these disagreements has resulted in a church struggling to find unity in the face of party line extremism.
In the second year of a highly contested presidency and a divided Congress, the church disagrees over our politicians, our laws, and the direction our country is heading. Is it possible that that the church has become so wrapped up in “issue” politics that it has failed to love our enemies, care for the poor, and embrace the character of Christ?
This lecture shares a vision for a more relevant, more generous Christianity in America—a faith that moves beyond right and left, and keeps its focus on the love and renewal which comes from God.
Join us for Tipping Point, an engaging, thought-provoking free public lecture series from YTI.
