Truth to Power: David Kahane

Oct 28, 2018: Speaking Truth to Power.

We can each probably look into our histories of conversation and activism to find times when we were speaking bravely for what’s right — and times when we were convinced of our righteousness, and actually sowing confusion or doing harm. How can we tell the difference, when it all feels so right in the moment?

Speaker: David Kahane is a Buddhist teacher and a professor of political theory at the University of Alberta, specializing in democracy, public participation, and systems change.

Service Leader: Sally-Ann Mowat

Musician: Carrie Day
