In this podcast, Chris shares his experience as a result of working with youth as emerging leaders and explains about re-coalescing i.e the need to be able to make room for previous and present perspectives and opinions. We discuss about the topics the younger generation is concerned about and we discover what Chris worries about and he would walk 100 miles for. Chris is rather pessimistic on building on our interconnectedness, but there is still a lot to be hopeful about after listening to his perspective.

David Beckmann is President Emeritus of Bread for the World and Founder and President Emeritus of the Alliance to End Hunger. David is working in new ways for political and spiritual change to move us out of the pandemic in a way that includes progress against hunger and poverty.  As President of Bread for the World 1991-2020, he led millions of people in successful advocacy with Congress. He was awarded the World Food Prize for his contribution to the world’s progress against hunger.  David sees the liberation of hundreds of millions of people from poverty over the last generation as an experience of our loving God and an invitation to do our part. In this podcast, I ask David to elaborate on his view on the Sustainable Development Goals (more known as Global Goals) especially with regard to the US. He  also shares his view on the status of US politics and has advice on that will require a lot of work from all. Consider subscribing to his website, if you want posts and other news emailed to you about his work. He hopes you will share your thoughts and insights, so that you learn from each other.

Tom Hampson spent 31 years working for CWS, first as associate director of their Global Education Office and then serving in various capacities in the areas of communications, marketing and fundraising. He retired from CWS in 2014 and returned to the town where he had grown up, Modesto, California.
 
While he was baptized into the Catholic Church, Tom's religious upbringing was more ecumenical since his dad was Methodist and his mom was Catholic. He attended the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana earning a Bachelor’s and later a Master’s degree in Theology. His interest in things religious was sparked by a sophomore year spent in Japan, where he studied Buddhism and Japanese culture.
 
After his retirement from CWS, he graduated from the School for Deacons at CDSP in Berkeley in May of 2019, and was ordained to the vocational Diaconate on November 16th at the Cathedral in Fresno. At present he is the Deacon at St. John the Baptist in Lodi, California.
