Resentment is always a dangerous emotion, especially if we let clichés do our thinking for us. In our troubled times it is essential to counter its spread between neighbours, religions, gangs and generations. Drawing on her work in Bothered and Bewildered, Ann Morisy will provide stepping stones from psychology, community action and Christian theology that lead from fear and resentment to the path of virtue.
Ann Morisy is a community theologian and lecturer. She directed the Commission that wrote the report “Faithful Cities” and has written on the spirituality of public transport, ageing and radical neighbourliness. She is the author of two best-selling books: Beyond the Good Samaritan and Journeying Out.
