CrisisIbility and the Path to a Better World

My friend Devry Boughner Vorwerk focuses her new podcast on my “new venture” to connect politics, spirituality, and social justice. I hope you will listen in as Devry and several other super-knowledgeable people help me explore ways to get out of the complex crisis our country is in. You will see that this podcast was a learning experience for me, and I hope that you too will find it thought-provoking.


Devry is now leading DevryBV Sustainable Strategies, a consulting group whose mission is to “inspire businesses to courageously serve humanity.” In her last job, as a corporate vice president of Cargill, she showed that social purpose can contribute to business profitability. She introduced Vice President Biden at a Bread for the World event at the end of 2018. You can find her other podcasts at www.crisisIbility.com.


You will also hear:


Michael Wright. Based on success as an executive of semiconductor companies, he now advises businesses on changes in technology and society (www.interceptinghorizons.com);


Steve Young, one of the pioneers of the corporate social responsibility movement, now executive director of the Caux Round Table for Moral Capitalism;


Johanna Mendolson Forman. Her career has focused on conflict and stabilization around the world, with a growing focus on food as an instrument of peace. Now a distinguished fellow at American University.


At the beginning and end of this discussion, I stressed that victory for Vice President Biden and defeat for President Trump and Trumpism are crucial to recovery from the health and economic crisis and, even more clearly, to spiritual vitality and social justice in our country.


The election is in 12 days. We might each make a list of things we can still do in the next 12 days to help achieve a good outcome - and then get those things done. Prayer should be on our lists.
