There is value in learning to speak together honestly and relate to each other with
dignity, without rushing to common ground that would leave all the hard
questions hanging. We will use Krista Tippet’s “Civil Conversations” curriculum
and OnBeing podcasts for this six-part series to practice having civil
conversations, to speak differently together in order to live together differently,
to learn not to advocate to bring others to see things our own way, or to not feel
pressured to give up the ground we stand on.

“We can discover how to calm fear and plant the seeds of the robust civil society
we desire and that our age demands. This is civic work and it is human spiritual
work – in the most expansive 21st century sense of that language. We can learn
from our time what moral imagination, social healing, and civil discourse can
look like and how they work. And so it is up to us, where we live, to start having
the conversations we want to be hearing, and creating the realities we want to
inhabit.” ~ Civil Conversations Curriculum
