Diversity and Inclusion

12/6/2018
More
This week challenged my ability to be inclusive and to respect diversity. There’s no hiding the fact that I like to see things in “black and white” and that sometimes I think that promoting diversity is more about relativism. So, I was blessed to chat with Dr. Moses Davis, who is a “specialist” when it comes to diversity and inclusion! Enjoy this challenging topic, and test how good you are at accepting people who are different from you.

More
This week I share an interview with an impressive young man who considers himself Catholic and Gay - in that order. I gave him a codename “J” in order to protect his identity and his parish. This conversation is real, raw and hopefully a reasonable approach to making peace despite the differences. Instead of arguing, I just asked questions, listened and tried not to be judgemental.
