Description

Happy New Year!

We are looking forward to a great 2018 with some continued wishes: hope for our country and community in these challenging times, renewed and expanded friendships, and stimulating conversations defined by respect, even when we disagree. Our goal isn’t unity, rather we want to create a space where we can all listen and disagree with respect. Because you are or hope to be a participant of Common Ground, we believe that you feel the same and will continue to commit your time and participation to this end!

2018 will bring some changes to our group. Sandy/Steve and Pat have launched our group wonderfully and have set a firm foundation for our continued alliance; much thanks and kudos to them! Due to the demands of other activities and commitments, these leaders are ready to pass on this role. Two Common Ground members, Lynn Heady and Beth Ann Malow, are enthusiastic and honored to step up and lead our group----with your input, ideas, and help. We know that putting our ideas and conversations “into action” is a goal we’ve all expressed. Let’s use this year to make this happen.

We are planning our next Common Ground meeting on February 1, 2018 ---same time (6:30 PM); same place (2103 Valley Brook Road, Nashville – behind Woodmont Christian Church). At this meeting we hope to enjoy dinner together, do some re-organization and planning for the upcoming year, and talk about how we can take our grassroots group into our community.

We will also be joined by a representative of Nashville Public Television. NPT has produced several town halls on a variety of local topics that are of interest to the community. In preparation for each of these town halls, NPT would like to come to our Common Ground meeting to listen to our discussion We believe having them there to “listen” as we identify topics, initiatives, and activities for the upcoming year will be a plus for our group and may help us network with others.

Please join us, bring your energy enthusiasm, and ideas, and RSVP (aka order a ticket!) so that we can plan dinner. IF you can, please bring $5 to cover the cost of the meal.

We are committed to having diverse groups of people interested in having deep, authentic conversations. We welcome people of all interests, beliefs and backgrounds. We need your help to bring that vision alive. Please invite your friends, neighbors, co workers - you name it - to join our group. The more different they are than you, the better! We hope the room will be full of people of different faiths, people of color, recent immigrants, you name it. We would truly appreciate your help in making that happen. We encourage you to personally invite people - forward this email - or suggest they visit our website or our Facebook page.
