“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!
Just as one would expect, Dean Alton Pollard’s office at the Howard University School of Divinity is lined with bookcases teeming with scholarly tomes. But what makes the place unique is his collection of African art sitting atop pedestals and hanging from the walls.
Perhaps the most significant piece in his collection, a statue of the Sankofa bird, resting on his desk is almost obscured by the stacks of books, papers and computer monitor nearby. Yet, even in that relative obscurity, it is a powerful reminder of the importance of learning from the past—especially amid the chaos and tumult of our current times.
“Return and get it,” the statue speaks.
Reflection gives way to reexamination, giving way to revelation.
Our inspiring and thought-provoking conversation with Dean Pollard covers a lot of ground, but is centered on providing a paradigm for viewing the current social and political milieu, what history teaches us and how we can chart a path forward.
Brought to you in two parts (look for the second installment in a few days), Dean Pollard waxes prophetically about the role of faith leaders in today’s climate and how the spirit of the divine doesn’t just exist in houses of worship, but is imbued in even the subtleties of daily life.
I invite you to set aside some time to sit, listen and reflect on this powerful message. Lean in, lean back and enjoy!
