Us and Them: How Did We Become So Polarized?: February 10, 2020 - Face2Face Conversation

2020, 1:36:28 min
Increasingly, public discourse is characterized by divisions between people and groups who see and understand the world differently. It is common for us to witness polarized speech played out in political spheres, in cultural 'us and them' assumptions, in urban-rural divides, and in the life of the church. This dynamic exerts a powerful effect on many of us, whatever our political or theological stripe. Building relationships of meaning and trust amongst people who see our world through vastly different lenses feels increasingly rare. This Face2Face conversation will seek to renew the importance of healthy public and churchly discourse and help us reimagine the role of listening, dialogue, patience, and bridge-building with those with whom we differ.

CMU's Face2Face events are a series of conversations with CMU faculty and special guests designed to engage the community on a wide variety of current events and issues at the intersection of faith and life.
