Description

What are the rules of social engagement in our fractured and hurting society? Have you been in a conversation where you wanted to say something but didn't know how? Or said something that was met with frustration and anger?

Through the last political season and amidst the current cultural tensions, disagreement seems to abound – in religion, in politics, education and a myriad of issues.

Dr. Richard Mouw will be speaking to the Pepperdine students during a convocation event on March 15 at 6 pm about the theory, spiritual significance and practical application of how to speak with respect when you disagree. The Boone Center for the Family in partnership with the Convocation Office invites you to join our students in learning how to have healthy and productive conversations with respect especially when disagreement runs high.

Gaining skills to teach our students how to effectively engage with others while learning a few tips ourselves could bridge gaps and open doors at Pepperdine for more civil and honest interactions for all. The Boone Center for the Family will be organizing follow-up groups for discussion that will be posted after we receive your reservation. We hope you join us!

Dr. Mouw is a philosopher, scholar, and author who served as the President of Fuller Theological Seminary for 20 years. Before coming to Fuller, he served for 17 years as a professor of philosophy at Calvin College. Dr. Mouw has written more than 20 books including Uncommon Decency: Christian Civility in an Uncivil World, The Challenges of Cultural Discipleship and Adventures in Evangelical Civility: A Lifelong Quest for Common Ground. He is re-known as a leader in interfaith theological conversations.
