With Harold Rosen
Today’s diversity of outlooks and worldviews poses significant challenges and opportunities. In both our local and global contexts we find a stunning variety of belief-groups – identifiable as Religious, Spiritual, Secular or a combination of these. How can we understand this diversity in realistic, hopeful and practically cooperative ways? Can those who feel reconciled embrace and include those who feel unreconciled? We’ll explore the dynamics of tolerance, respect, understanding and cooperation – preparing ourselves to contribute to a more vibrant community and a more united world.
