In recent years, the ability of the Church to offer transformative witness in the modern world has been diminished not just by disheartening stories about the Church but by the quality of conversation within the Church—conversation that mirrors the polarization, falsehoods, outrage, and meanness of contemporary American life rather than modeling an alternative. On the job and off, those of us working in the field of Catholic publishing can play an important role in reshaping the tenor of Catholic dialogue on social media. We’ll talk about best practices derived from the fields of negotiation and conflict science that can help us to influence the Catholic presence online in more healthy directions.
