Covid’s got me grounded like everyone else right now, but I’m not twiddling my thumbs! In this messy election season, I’ve been doing Zoom workshops for Catholic school teachers, administrators, and board members around keeping the communications lines open when things feel tense and developing classroom resources for helping students understand what truth is and why it is important.
Ann’s most recent book
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.
