Sunday School: Common Ground
September 23, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Join Ann Keirn for a five-week series to explore theoretical and practical ways to have civil conversations that don’t become battles!
For Christians, civility is rooted in the recognition of Christ in every individual and in our deep and abiding value of community, humility and reconciliation.
“Civility is simply demonstrating respect for the dignity of our fellow humans — even those humans with whom we have a sharp disagreement. Civility is allowing others to speak, and having the humility to admit that we may have something to learn. Civility favors truth over cheap gain, and patience over knee-jerk judgment.”
We all need help, especially in these difficult and polarizing times in our nation during an election year, with engaging in tough conversations with family and friends who may not see things the same way we do.
