Citizen University TV: Time and citizenship at Civic Saturday
12/8/201859:07

Citizen University presents a special edition of Civic Saturday from its home turf at Impact Hub Seattle. Host Eric Liu explores the topic of time and citizenship, focusing on three aspects of time that shape our civic lives: tempo, horizons, and patterns. Liu reminds us to move at our own tempos and to be intentional. But he admits that can be a challenge. Take Seattle, for example, he says the city is moving both too quickly and too slowly to deal with growth and that's led to turbulence in local politics. And what can baseball, Winston Churchill and Star Trek teach us about the patterns of time? Civic Saturday is a civic analogue to a faith gathering that celebrates the American civic tradition with an address by Liu, readings, song and reflection.
