Adult Conversation - Fall/Winter Series
Meets: Sundays, beginning September 15 at 9am in the Foster Room
Currently, the Adult Conversation is looking at how to have both religious and political conversations with others (who are different from us) in a "grace-filled" way. To do this, we are using the book I Think You're Wrong (But I'm Listening): a guide to grace-filled political conversations by Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth Silvers.
Their book is described as follows: More than ever, politics seems driven by conflict and anger. People sitting together in pews every Sunday have started to feel like strangers, loved ones at the dinner table like enemies. Toxic political dialogue, hate-filled rants on social media, and agenda-driven news stories have become the new norm. It’s exhausting, and it’s too much.
In I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening), two working moms from opposite ends of the political spectrum contend that there is a better way. They believe that we can:
choose to respect the dignity of every person,
choose to recognize that issues are nuanced and can’t be reduced to political talking points,
choose to listen in order to understand,
choose gentleness and patience.
Please join us in discussing this important topic.
