As educators, we are constantly dealing with student questions related to truth: What can I believe? How can I know? Who can I trust to tell me the truth? But what if this is “my truth?” How do I talk to someone who holds different truths? These have always been complicated questions but especially so in 2020. Join other Lasallian educators to reflect on how the wider Catholic tradition can serve as a resource for thinking through tough truth-related questions and offer tools for “living truth” in challenging times.
