My new book #Rules_of_Engagement is now out! Here I am talking about it with the lovely co-hosts of Ave Spotlight, Chenele Shaw and Katie Prejean McGrady. Also got the chance to sneak in a few comments on the topic in my most recent interview with Tim Uhl on Catholic School Matters, while discussing the first chapter of Pope Francis' new encyclical, Fratelli Tutti. Check out my recent newsletter to find additional resources available for educators - whether on the school or parish front - related to wise use of social media.
Having Tough Conversations Around Truth?
I’m just as weary as you are of confusing, tangled, and often heated conversations involving truth and the things that each of us holds as true. I wrote Let’s Talk about Truth to see if we might go about these conversations in a more fruitful way by drawing on wisdom of our faith tradition—especially the thought of Thomas Aquinas—about the many different “faces” of truth. Check out reviews of the book in NCR and US Catholic.
A s Christians we are called to be like leaven in the world, including the world of social media. Though we might feel small and insignificant (really, what difference do my posts make?) how we individually show up in this space has the power to be transformative. Join Christians from around the world in making the #Rules_of_Engagement pledge and be part of changing the tenor of conversation on social media for the good. See the List of those who have already pledged publicly.
