NEW HAVEN — Krista Tippett, host of National Public Radio’s “Speaking of Faith,” is not really interested in her guests’ religious beliefs.
What she cares deeply about is how they live out those beliefs and how they approach issues that we all face.
“For the record, I’m no longer interested very much in what religious people believe,” she told a packed Marquand Chapel audience Wednesday. “I’m interested in how they think.”
Tippett’s weekly program explores a broad spectrum of religion and spirituality. Based in St. Paul, Minn., the show won a Peabody Award this year. A 1994 graduate of Yale Divinity School, Tippett returned for the school’s fall convocation.
