009 Rev John Bellaimey, Breck Schools

Rev John Bellaimey, Upper school chaplain and head of religion department, and at the Breck Schools in Minneapolis, joins us in a podcast recorded a few months ago.

I asked John here because of his work with High School students as a teacher and a councilor. In todays world, where  on one hand, we celebrate differences and diversity, and on another, we feel more siloed  into our own religions traditions, I chat with John about the importance of learning about other’s traditions and faiths as teens, and even before. John and I are going to look at Why its better not to wait: Learning about other religions in High School.
