The Rev. Kenneth I. Clarke Sr. has faith that a new program series will begin to reverse the 35-year-long downturn in Sage Chapel attendance. Under the chapel's new theme, “Where Spirit and Intellect Meet,” he is leading an aggressive interfaith outreach effort that invites such faculty speakers as historian Nick Salvatore and musicians — including the Burns Sisters, Samite of Uganda and Women in Black — to participate in the chapel's service and other events.

For starters, the traditional Sunday morning service has moved to 4 p.m. from 11 a.m. And Sunday events have monthly themes, such as Faith and Reason, Creativity, and Transcendence and Enlightenment.
