Description

We all bring our own values and beliefs to the table when we discuss difficult, controversial, or divisive issues. When we do, we must be prepared to engage passionately and with commitment to our own worldviews without fear of being characterized as ignorant or wrong or deceitful. There are tools and skills that can foster this kind of civil discourse. This “Theology Night Live!” conversation with Theology professor Marguerite Spencer, J.D., will equip us to replace walls of division, absolutism, and arrogance with agape (love), ambiguity, and humility. When informed by this approach, we can create a culture of encounter at UST and beyond that fosters honest debate and collective problem solving.
