What if we're thinking about forgiveness in the wrong way?
What if there was a better way to forgive others?
What if forgiveness was an actual state of being?

Stephen Mitchell is an author who was born in Brooklyn in 1943, educated at Amherst, the Sorbonne, and Yale, and de-educated through intensive Zen practice.

He is on the show today to discuss his latest book The Way Of Forgiveness: A Story About Letting Go.

Mitchell’s retelling of the biblical story of Joseph and his brothers interweaves the narrative with brief meditations that, with their Zen surprises, expand and illuminate the main themes. The engrossing tale that he has created will capture the hearts and minds of modern readers and show them that this ancient story can still challenge, delight, and astonish. With lyrical, witty, and vivid prose, Mitchell brings fresh insight to this foundational legend of betrayal and the power of forgiveness.

In this episode of the podcast Joe talks to his old college professor Dr. Nick Ewen about what college has been like in the "age of COVID."

Dr. Ewen discusses figuring out how to improvise teaching to a digital method, how to maximize learning, and what types of new processes he is putting into place to better serve his students and the community.

We're going to get through this but we all have to work together.
