Event description

Description

In these highly polarized times, how do we make our Religious Communities places where people can:

  • Share their stories and have simple, honest conversations about things that matter
  • Find Higher Ground even when common ground is not achievable in the short run
  • Create communities that respect the dignity of differences
  • Focus on Relational and Communal Healing

This one-day, interactive conference will explore the vision of our religious communities as places for higher ground. Hands-on workshops will offer specific skills and practices from the world of conflict transformation to assist communities and leaders in working towards this vision.

A light breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided. Kosher and Halal dietary laws will be observed.
