Forgiveness in a Time of Political Division

It is an incredible privilege to have Todd Deatherage, Executive Director and Co-founder of Telos Group, join us March 6 to open our series on forgiveness in a time of radical division.
Listen to Todd's teaching at UPPC.org/Media.  Even better, use the UPPC App for iPhone/iPad, or the UPPC app from Google Play!

The mission of Telos Group is to form communities of American peacemakers across lines of difference, and equip them to help reconcile seemingly intractable conflicts at home and abroad. The Telos Group has become a leading organization of America’s emerging pro-Israeli, pro-Palestinian, pro-American, pro-peace movement. Historically, Telos Group’s primary focus has been America’s relationship to Israel/Palestine. In recent years, they’ve begun to replicate their model in other conflict and post-conflict areas, which they believe are connected.

Todd spent sixteen years in senior positions in the legislative and executive branches of the U.S. government before co-founding the Telos Group. From 2005 to 2009, he was Chief of Staff in the Secretary of State’s Office of Policy Planning at the U.S. State Department. He also spent two years as Senior Advisor in the Department’s Office of International Religious Freedom, where he specialized in religious freedom in the Middle East. Todd worked for a decade in the U.S. Congress, including six years as Chief of Staff to Senator Tim Hutchinson. He is a native Arkansan and a graduate of the University of Arkansas. He began his career as an educator. He and his family live in Fairfax County, Virginia.
