Event description

Description


The God Squad is a project of The Village Square, devoted to building community across divides.




This year The Village Square is turning our attention all year to hosting a conversation about this place we call home.

Suicide rates are up 30% since the turn of the century, for girls between 7 and 17 it’s up 70%. 72,000 Americans die from the slow suicide of opiate addiction and depression rates are skyrocketing. 50% of Americans say no one knows them well. There is an epidemic quietly playing out in our hometowns — and this hometown is no exception.

Facilitated by: Father Tim Holeda, St. Thomas More Co-Cathedral

God Squad is generously sponsored by The Grove at Canopy, a luxurious community of active, assisted and independent living residences in Tallahassee.

Lunch provided by The Grove at Canopy is $10 if you register through the Wednesday ahead of the program ($15 after). The program is free if you’d like to bring your own lunch or not eat.


Meet the God Squad, the brains behind our series “Faith, Food, Friday: Improbable conversations for people of faith and no faith at all (because talking politics wasn’t hard enough). Whoever you are, whatever your beliefs, bring an open mind, an open heart (and an empty stomach) for a continuing conversation that makes it safe to bring your beliefs to the public square - just as you are. We hope you'll join us as we explore what happens when people of good will who might disagree cross each others' thresholds and break a little bread together.
