Tuesday, April 17 -- General Meeting -- Healing the Divide

Lead by: Shari Jung. Underneath this country's political schism, there exists a corresponding cultural and/or societal divide. We all experience it: an overarching fear, disrespect, righteousness, incivility and often deep anger. These basic human feelings, although common to mankind throughout the ages, now threaten the effectiveness of our democracy.

It is helpful but not enough to vote new leaders into Congress. We the people can and must create a culture in which we return to our basic principles of inclusion, connection and civil discourse.

This presentation is about hope, healing and communication. It will focus on the relevant work being done around our nation and ways we might participate in healing both ourselves and subsequently healing our divided nation. See Calendar for location and time.
