Navigating Troubled Waters – Listening to the “Other”
“Good patriots carry on a lover’s quarrel with their country.” —- William Sloan Coffin
Some of us feel like this: “I can’t talk to my friends, my neighbors, my family! The tension is too much!” At a time in which our country is painfully divided, these are the struggles many in our communities are experiencing. Yet, beneath the tension there is heartbreak. Across the board, we feel deeply about the values we want to see our country exhibit, but we realize we are more painfully divided on the substance of the “values” than we realized.
So, how do we navigate our emotions, our relationships, our conversations? The Center would like you to join us for 3 monthly conversations centered around this question. Rooted in a belief that understanding begins with telling our story and listening to the story of the other we invite you to take seriously what it means to navigate troubled waters with steadiness and integrity. Please join us here at the Center for these 3 important monthly conversations.
