Reconciliation Roundtable Podcast
There are forces and voices in our increasingly polarized world that want us to view the issues of the day in a binary way: this or that; good or bad. This podcast seeks to invite people to journey beyond the safety of our silos and our egos – to the soul; where we have the opportunity to see things differently. Each episode includes discussions with a different guest, exploring their faith journeys, the development of their vocations and passions, and how they have been able to reconcile shifting beliefs along the way.
