The Thursday, September 10th 2020 edition in KGNU’s quarterly conflict resolution series
It’s one thing to deal with a usual election cycle – arguing differences in platforms and party approaches. But in 2020, on top of a pandemic and the fear of getting sick or dying, we also have a racial reckoning in our streets stirring all kinds of emotions. And now, we have conspiracy theories and “fake news” fears that feel impossible to sift through. How can we manage conflict with each other amidst our own internal conflicts? We’re going to hear about some tools for resilience from a chaplain who assists people usually in their worst times of fears, realities, and conflicts.
Listen to the show below:
