“How to talk so the ‘other team’ will listen… and listen so the ‘other team’ will talk”
All around us, we see the fall-out of political polarization. People who were once friends are unable to get along, and a working democracy seems difficult to arrange. In our personal lives, too, there may be people who hold opposing views with whom we are always butting heads. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were some tricks by which we could help them feel heard and valued – and maybe even get heard ourselves some of the time? Good news, there are. This morning we will learn time-tested techniques for recreating that fundamental sense of connection with another, so that we can move on to cooperating on making better lives for ourselves, each other and our world.
Never underestimate what we can do together!
To change our world for the better, it will take each of us celebrating and sharing our unique gifts to discover new ways to nurture our planet. As curious, spiritually independent people, our Fellowship strives to provide an open and supportive environment to explore the creativity, strength and wisdom within the diverse experiences and aspirations of each person. There is meaning and joy to discover in this type of religious community. And by working together, we help strengthen our interconnections.
Join us at a Sunday morning service at 10:30 in our Sanctuary. Our children’s spiritual development classes also begin at 10:30. We have classes for nursery, elementary and middle school ages.
