Truth and reconciliation is a response to colonialism but for individuals it’s a chance to enlarge our viewpoints by hearing experiences of others, a pioneering clergywoman says.
Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, former presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church in the U.S., the first woman to be elected a primate in the worldwide Anglican Church, said truth and reconciliation at its most basic, is about listening and respect.
“It’s really an anti-colonialism response,” said Jefferts Schori in a telephone interview from her home in Nevada.
“It encourages people to hear each other’s stories and perspectives and to respect their differences rather than imposing your own view.”
