Untying Knots: part 2 of our election series10/28/20
If we are better together, why are we so far apart? Why do we seem to be drowning in outrage and contempt? Pope Francis urges us to seek out new ways of thinking and deepen our capacity for kinship with those whose worldviews diverge sharply from our own. The focus of this session is charting a path from culture-war polarization to solidarity, kinship and culture peacemaking. The evening will include an explanation of polarization’s roots and remedies as well as paired conversations and modified peace circle participation.
Mike McGillicuddy is a member of the Ignatian Volunteer Corp and a retired psychiatric social worker. He is a former DeLaSalle Christian Brother whose career path also included teaching, government service and financial planning. As a college student in Memphis, he marched with Martin Luther King Jr. He and his wife, Mary worship at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Riverside, Illinois.
