Thriving Through Change and Uncertainty

With Rev. Phillip A. Jackson

Priest-in-Charge & Vicar of the Trinity Church Wall Street in New York. JD from Yale Law School. Board of Trustees of Amherst College.

Rev. Phillip A. Jackson is the Priest-in-Charge and Vicar of the Trinity Church Wall Street in New York, to understand how our core beliefs, our faith, and our connection with our soul can guide us, inspire us, and strengthen us so we can thrive in times of radical change and uncertainty. Rev. Jackson is on the Board of Trustees of Amherst College, and he holds a Juris Doctorate from Yale Law School, and a Master of Divinity from The Church Divinity School of the Pacific.


  • Giving yourself away. Thank you for sharing how Thomas Merton affected you. He affected me too! Jeanine Hull
  • Courage is needed more than ever. Thank you so much. You have opened my eyes to Christian thought in a new way. Lisa Larkoski
  • Thank you both. This has been a wonderful conversation to hear and for continuing my own reflection on this little life of ours. Sam Ghiregeri


Rev. Jackson and Prof. Wadhwa will discuss Rev. Jackson’s perspectives on Thomas Merton, a Trappist monk, mystic and social activist who wrote extensively on how spirituality can guide and inspire our professional life and personal life. They will also explore the promise held by today’s social justice movements and the relevance of George Washington in today’s America (Washington prayed at the Trinity Church right after his inauguration as the first President of the United States and continued to regularly pray at the Church thereafter for a year).

“Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.”
Thomas Merton
