About Courage and Faith

Courage and Faith was founded in 2009 by best-selling writer and leader of The Loft services at Christ Church Greenwich, Ian Cron, and Rector of Christ Church Greenwich, Jim Lemler. Under Ian and Jim’s leadership many of the best religious thinkers and leaders of our time came to speak at Christ Church, including: Maya Angelou, N.T. Wright, Marcus Borg, Phyllis Tickle, Rob Bell, Richard Rohr, Anne Lamott and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

In 2015 artist and manager of the Christ Church Bookstore, Becky Ford, became the new program director. Read about Courage and Faith’s ongoing mission here: https://www.greenwichsentinel.com/2016/03/11/courage-faith-series-to-feature-mary-karr/
