From Candid Conversations in a Cultural Moment:
In their conversation about grappling with systemic injustice, Steve Moore and David Bailey spoke about the need to remember that we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Steve referred to Aleksandr Sololzhenitsyn’s classic Harvard commencement address, in which he pointed out that the line of evil runs through every heart.
As David Bailey writes in his article, Reconciliation is Spiritual Formation, we can also struggle with immobility in the face of racial hierarchies in society, either because we feel we’re not responsible for the problem, or we’re paralyzed by the enormity of it. “The question is: How does one become a positive agent of change for a problem that is not just personal, but interpersonal, cultural, and structural?”
Participants listening to Steve and David’s conversation also shared these resources:
- One thought provoking article from HBR that highlights the need to redefine leadership in organizational contexts.
