What light might meditation shed on our contemporary culture wars? The hallmark of the culture wars is identification of the enemy, from among the differences that contain us: race, religion, class, gender, sexual preference. The hallmark of the contemplative way is recognition of our neighbour, especially where we least expect to meet him. A talk by Laurence Freeman at St. Theresa's Catholic Church, Houston, USA 17th May 2011.
