From the Dean: Sacrificing Character So We Can Keep Fighting

DeanMarkuly90x90-2

It will take decades to understand the impact our 24/7 bingeing on polarized thinking and talking is having on us. In the past few weeks, however, we can see at least one outcome – our institutions are losing the ability to tolerate someone who tries to change the subject from our right-left, conservative-liberal, red-blue noxious conversation. This is particularly true for people possessing the kind of character that has been shaped by religious values, worldviews, and ideas.

The Christian Celebration of Easter

HappyEaster2-90x90

Last week, the Christian tradition in western cultures celebrated Holy Week, culminating in the celebration of Easter. (The Orthodox tradition will celebrate on April 8.) Holy Week for Christians reflects on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and although Christmas gets more cultural attendant, Holy Week and Easter are really the pinnacle of Christian annual celebrations.
