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.

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. Tom also serves as the Co-Chair of the Immigration Commission for the Diocese and Episode 17 of our podcast Walk Talk Listen will reveal, he is still very active in his community and still trying to walk the talk.
