Joseph Montville

Former diplomat Joseph Montville speaks at the second Lenten forum for 2013: The Way of Reconciliation: From Injury to Restoration.

Few issues are more contentious than the relationship between religious groups, especially in the political ‘hot spots’ in the world. Former diplomat Joseph Montville has spent his working career coordinating efforts to bridge the divide in these areas. His recent work in the Middle East to promote inter-religious healing will serve as the background to his forum presentation.
