    Blessed are the Merciful/ December 3, 2017

    Peter Fitch continues talks on the Beatitudes. This times he speaks about the merciful and the pure in heart. He shares a few ideas about each one and then focuses on some of the great ideas in Martin Buber’s classic, I and Thou, to show a way that they could be seen to work together.

    Longing for Righteousness (November 26, 2017)

    Longing for Righteousness/ November 26, 2017

    Peter Fitch continues his look at the Beatitudes by examining Matthew 5:6, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.” Near the beginning, he asks Leland Maerz, a narrative therapist from Nova Scotia who works with victims and perpetrators of sexual violence, to share a little about his work. Then Peter returns to speak about his hope for a new paradigm that might be called Beyond Supremacy. Along the way he draws from a skit on Saturday Night Live, a few of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s last words and, especially, from Bryan Stevenson’s book, Just Mercy.
