In the polarized era in which we live, it is often taken for granted that we don’t know how to talk with others, especially others whose background and perspective differ from our own. In this workshop with author Chris Smith, we will explore both theologically and scripturally why conversation is an essential practice for churches, and how churches can bear witness to the transforming power of conversation in our polarized times. Workshop participants will also practice conversation with each other.
Registration is free, but is required. Please register here.
This event is being held in conjunction with a free lunchtime lecture, which is open to the public. Find out more about that event here.
