In A Return to Civil Discourse, we will explore how we all yearn for a connection with others. We gravitate toward people who support our perspectives and worldviews hoping to impact our communities to work for good. Conversely, we find ourselves trying to convince and convert others to our beliefs and points of view.
The campaign season is upon us, and very few are looking forward to being inundated with messages from both sides of the political divide promoting fear and proclaiming who is right and who is wrong.
Civil discourse is a conversation in which there is a mutual airing of views without rancor. It is not a contest of who is right and who is wrong, but it is a process intended to promote greater understanding. It is our ability to do just that, which moves us to a greater level of understanding and engagement to work for the common good. Join us and discover ways to engage in civil discourse, a discourse grounded in the belief that civility is not weakness. And that compromise is not surrender.
