Note from CM: I realize that this is a long presentation, but believe me, it is worth your while. Perhaps you can break it down into segments and watch them throughout the week. I would be happy to receive comments today, Tuesday, or Wednesday on this video.
Here is a prime example of civil conversation and the possibilities of productive, peace-enhancing discourse between two people with radically different faith positions. I chose to show it today because we are talking about Jonathan Haidt’s book, The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion, and here he is, attempting to apply his own teaching by engaging in a conversation and Q&A session with Pastor Timothy Keller at NYU, who also demonstrates a spirit of kindness and cordiality that is most attractive.
I found it extremely encouraging, and I hope you will too. And that you’ll pass the word along that this kind of respectful interaction is possible, even in our polarized moment of history.
