Program Title: Michael Lerner – Faith, Politics & the Left, part two
Description: These are times of deceit, rage and fear. Well, you might say, it’s always been like that. But it seems the intensity of this moment is more acute. The coarseness of discourse is sharper. The rancor is deeper. Maybe the pervasiveness of social media accounts for some of it. How can we navigate the treacherous currents that are running through our politics and by extension into our personal lives? What is the intersection of faith, politics and the left? Is it possible to reach out to those who espouse views that are diametrically opposed to ours? How to do that? Rabbi Michael Lerner says many on the left are too quick to dismiss people who are religious. To reach people you disagree with you can’t be condescending and arrogant.
