Ed Peck, PhD. offers a way to engage the pandemic with a method of reconciliation, wholeness and imagination. He draws on the work of higher education to place those on the margins in the center to listen to their experience and story. Essentially this means we live from a place of awareness as reconcilers. Dr. Peck submits a listening approach to engage the reality of our lives which pines for an integrated story. We reverence the life of our mentor Fr. Howard Gray, SJ who always saw people as loved. This episode shows a way to bridge higher education with a health system.
