Growing Beyond Polarization – Fr. David McCallum

by | 3 June 2022 | Blog, Videos

One of the most painful and challenging issues we face within our societies and the Church is the degree to which we have become fragmented and polarized in our perspectives and separated in our relationships. How do we as discerning leaders understand the dynamics that create this current state, and how do we move forward in a way that liberates people from the places we’ve become stuck? How do we maintain healthy differences of values and identity and yet re-discover our belonging for the sake of the common good? These are the topics of this webinar presentation by Fr. David McCallum SJ for the Ignatian Volunteer Corps.
