Listen in to our conversation with Emmanuel M. Katongole, a Catholic priest of the Kampala archdiocese in Uganda and co-director of the Center for Reconciliation at Duke Divinity School. In this interview, Katongole talks about the need to challenge the western church to reconsider its notion of "tribalism" as a way of dividing people groups; instead, he calls the global church to move beyond the cultural and societal borders that divide us and unite as the family of God.

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)
