Guest: Parker J. Palmer
On this program, renowned author, speaker, activist and founder of the Center for Courage and Renewal, Parker J. Palmer, shares his thoughts on how we can use the energy of our political tensions to unite us for the common good.

Where have "We the People" gone? is a valid question to ask at a time when our nation seems so polarized. We are still here, says Parker Palmer, but in need of rebuilding our political infrastructure in the same way that we rebuild bridges in need of repair. In this stimulating discussion, you will hear how the "habits of the heart" and "chutzpah and humility" can help us find community with each other.

These are major themes from Parker Palmer's latest book, Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Creat A Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit.
