Julie Walsh and Dr. Linda Wansi discuss a topic that any good citizen – and especially any good Christian – should be willing to wrestle with: being open to the idea that we could be wrong.
From abortion to race to spiritual hang-ups in their own lives, the two discuss the work it takes to be honest with yourself in considering the idea that you could be wrong, and that you need to change.
Such work is important in building up one’s own spiritual health, but it’s also important in building up the civic health of a democratic society.
Dr. Linda Wansi is a cradle Catholic who fell away from the Church, but was called back to the fullness of her faith after what she considers a miraculous encounter with the Eucharist. When she is not caring for patients in her dental office, Linda can be found chasing her two toddler daughters, or chasing sleep. She is passionate about spreading the Gospel and proclaiming the sanctity and dignity of all life, from womb to tomb.
