PART 1 in FVPS SERIES: Karen Armstrong "Business and Compassion..."
This event is part of Seattle University School of Theology and Ministry's lecture series Faith and Values in the Public Square which examines the role of the faithful person in the world today. The lecture will be followed by a book signing.

Karen Armstrong explores the intersection of business and compassion in exploring an ethical center, at Seattle University on April 4, 2012. This event is sponsored by Seattle University's School of Theology of Ministry and Albers School of Business and Economics in partnership with the Compassionate Action Network.

Armstrong's poignant and captivating talks have sparked worldwide debate and healthy discussion. Her bestselling books, including Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life and A History of God, examine the differences and the profound similarities between Christianity, Islam, and Judaism, and their impact on world events. In 2008, she was awarded the TED Prize in recognition and support of her call for a council of religious and spiritual leaders to draw up a "Charter for Compassion" that applies shared moral priorities to foster greater global understanding based on the principles of justice and respect.

As a speaker and writer, Armstrong asserts that all major religions embrace the core principle of compassion and the Golden Rule, and also emphasizes that many of today's religions bear similar strains of fundamentalism borne of frustration with contemporary life and current events.
