Parish Unity, A Goal Worth Pursuing: Join us Nov. 12

WHAT MAKES US CONSERVATIVE OR LIBERAL?

A NEW ANSWER!

Studies are showing what many of us already know from the acrimony—or chilly silence—at our family tables: our nation has not been this divided politically and culturally since the Civil War.

Does our faith tradition offer us ways of listening respectfully and honoring the other person, even though we disagree?
Can Church be a “safe place” where we can express our opinions and not be judged, “shut down,” or pressured to change those opinions?
Do we, as followers of the Prince of Peace have a role in the healing of these divisions not just in our own families, but in our nation?

St. David’s is setting aside the night of Tuesday, November 12, to explore that question, with Interim Rector Dean Taylor. We begin with a Pot Luck Dinner at 6:00, with program to begin at 6:45 in Swanson Hall, followed by small group discussion ending at 8:30. Childcare is provided upon request (email commonpurpose@stdavidschurch.org by Nov 8).

This event is inspired by the Common Purpose presentation by the Rev. Allen Hilton, author of A House Divided: How the Church Can Save the World.
