Pulpit and Politics looks at public life in Canada and elsewhere through an ethical lens. Dennis Gruending’s emphasis is upon vulnerable groups including refugees and Indigenous peoples, as well as issues such as inequality, health care, climate change and the deliberate spread of hate and disinformation. Dennis also uses the blog to post brief pieces of memoir.
