Resources for the session:
Article for preparation:
- Why do you think discord, polarization, and conflict characterize so much discourse not only in our society today, but also within the church? What is it costing us?
- Can you think of times in your life when you dealt with differences positively and were blessed? What enabled you to see the person or group that was different as a "gift" rather than a "threat"? What did the experience teach you?
- How can the Passionist family--individually, communally, and in its various ministries--help us move beyond discord, polarization, and conflict to concord, unity, and peace? Why should Passionists be confident in responding to this challenge?
