Overview & Registration Instructions

America is deeply divided. Tensions exist within and between many of our communities, and we are finding it increasingly harder to listen to those on the other side of the aisle—whether that aisle is political, racial, economic, or religious. The American Pilgrimage explores how the seeds of our division were sown at the noble yet contradictory beginning of our American story. 

The Telos team will guide you through an experience where you will look at the past to help to understand our present realities in order to know how to engage in reconciling culture-making for a better tomorrow.
