Faith Leaders of Different Views Share Ideas on

Bridging Our National Divides

Two of America’s best-known faith leaders Bishop Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church, and Dr. Russell Moore, Executive Director of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention engaged in a conversation moderated by award-winning On Being broadcaster Krista Tippett.

In this conversation, these leaders, who represent denominations with different theological and cultural perspectives, share their personal views, examine areas of common ground and explore how their faith leads them to treat others with dignity and respect across differences. They also explore some of the key ethical teachings of their faith (i.e. the Golden Rule, forgiveness, humility) and look at ways these teachings are relevant to the task of creating understanding and reconciliation between Americans of different political views.

The Washington National Cathedral and the National Institute for Civil Discourse convened this conversation during this difficult moment in our country, as an opportunity for Americans to explore understanding across our differences and engaging each other with dignity and respect. We hope you find this valuable and we look forward to additional conversations together and fostering meaningful understanding forged through listening and civil discourse.
