Truth in the West is highly contested. The advent of post-truth politics, in addition to the ongoing culture wars, mitigates against truth being understood solely on the basis of objective facts, as it was in the past. For pastoral carers and counsellors, this raises significant questions: how to build shared understandings of truth between individuals and in communities? This article proposes a solution in an incarnational approach to pastoral work. Drawing upon the work of Rowan Williams, Raimon Panikkar, Diarmuid O’Murchu, and St. Maximos the Confessor, this article offers both theological and practical considerations regarding this approach.
