Dialogue Through Difference

April 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Tuesday, repeating until April 24, 2018

The United States is experiencing a time of great polarization. Complex issues are boiled down to catch phrases and bumper stickers are defined to the responses of others as they shout in their echo chambers of social media. As Unitarian Universalists, who believe in the inherent worth and dignity of all people, in beloved community, and our Mission of Courageous Love, it is important for us to be able to Dialogue through Difference, and what

 

better place to start than with ourselves. Join us as we explore what makes us the unique people that we are, our own personal beliefs, and how we can use Dialogue as a spiritual practice.

 

Class One: Who am I? We will be exploring what makes us unique and what does that mean when we talk about the inherent worth and dignity of all people. We will share the stories of our lives.

Class Two: This I believe. We will continue to work on the skills of dialogue, speaking and listening and we will explore our free and responsible search for truth and meaning and our acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregation.

Class Three: Dialogue as a Spiritual Practice. In this class, we will explore some techniques to practice our deep listening: to our inner dialogue, to empathize with others and to be more authentic in our own communication. We do this practice so that we can live into our mission.

Join me as we explore our diversity and practice our dialogue. Darrick Hildman M.Ed. Communication Instructor at Front Range Community College (and Engagement Coordinator at Foothills)
