Justice vs. Reconciliation?
Interpersonal Conflicts in Troubling Times
Dr. C. Harry Hui
25 September 2019 (Wednesday) | 7:30pm-9pm
CPD-LG.07, HKU Centennial Campus (LG/F)
The social unrest that began in June 2019 has taken a toll on many otherwise loving relationships in families and faith communities. People in the midst of such rifts often wonder:
- Can I maintain ties with someone who does not have any sense of justice?
- Why is reconciliation difficult or even impossible?
- No justice, no peace?
- What should I take note of when trying to rebuild an important relationship?
Dr. Hui will address these questions from a psychologist’s perspective and from his knowledge of Hong Kong’s Christian community.
