In part two of our conversation with Alton B. Pollard, III, Dean of the Howard University School of Divinity, we learn more what about his raison d’être and how you can find yours.

“I seldom think of what I do is work, for me it really is love of life. The love of life is for which all this stems,” says Pollard, who served as a pastor before joining the academy while also being a husband and father. “For some of us, we really understand that this is a sacred calling, that life itself is vocation.”

For the first half of our chat with Dean Pollard, we focused not only on the role of faith leadership amidst a constantly evolving social and political climate, but also what lessons we can learn from the past as we—individually and collectively—chart a path forward.

In this portion of our exchange, we explore how even seemingly innocuous daily encounters are imbued with spiritual meaning. We learn how each interaction influences our relationships and how by being mindful and intentional we can move closer to the Divine. This conversation will help you better understand how you truly can Be Your Better Self, by giving and getting the most out of life.

Lean in, lean back and enjoy!
