Building Our Capacity for Trust

October 25, 2020



I am not speaking anything new when I say that our level of collective anxiety may be higher than at any point in the last 50 years. The sources of our collective anxiety are many.

  • Example: 4 million acres have burned on the west coast, with a gigafire called the “August Complex” raging in northern California.[1] What does such destruction tell us about climate change, and what does it portend for our future?
  • Example: Among persons of African-American heritage, a collective grief has arisen over police brutality and legal injustice, which is so deep that it can hardly be expressed.[2]
