Episode 14 - A Light Task: Bringing Peace Through Silence and Hospitality
According to a recent study, the current U.S. presidential election has created high levels of stress and anxiety among people. Many feel polarized and desperate. As Ray Buckley and Rabbi David Horowitz explain in this month’s Academy podcast, we’ve lost sight of the fact that what we have in common is far greater than what we don’t. At the same time, they remind us that we do not have to sit passively, watching our communities in conflict. Instead, God calls us to take responsibility for the pain and tension, to get involved, and to point toward the Light. While this may seem difficult and overwhelming, we can begin to take responsibility by engaging the simple practices of silence and hospitality.
