About the event
Everywhere we turn we are faced with more and more divisiveness. It has affected our families, our communities, our Church, and our world and made us fearful to begin even a simple conversation with anyone. How did we get to this point? What can we do to help alleviate this divide that is growing every day? Please join us as Fr. Wessman shares his work about polarization. He will also call us to put aside our anger and follow God’s call to bring God’s love to our fractured world. In his book, The Church’s Mission in a Polarized World, he writes, “Christians and other people of good will are longing for a response that can lead the way out of the divisiveness and vitriol of our times. I wrote the book to provide some assistance to readers to discern a way out of the toxicity in which we live, and to stimulate courage and hope so that all people can see the age in which we live more clearly and respond with the grace necessary to follow more fully the call God as spoken-a missionary call to deepen Christ’s incarnational movement in our world.”
