Interpersonal Relations Across Political Divides: People of Faith Building Bridges from Polarization to Reconciliation

March 11, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

People of faith in the U.S. today are as politically polarized as other Americans, prompting painful breakdowns in personal relationships and communities. What would it take to accept responsibility for actively healing these political and religious divisions, activating solutions rather than continuing assaults? Join Senator John C. Danforth and Father Matt Malone, two priests from different Christian churches and political parties, for a conversation about bridge building, accountability, and reconciliation.

Washington University in St. Louis Provost Beverly Wendland will introduce the event, which will be moderated by Professor Marie Griffith. During this online conversation Danforth and Malone will continue the thinking penned in their commentary “A First Step Toward Loving Our Enemies” published on September 3, 2020 by The Wall Street Journal.
