How many of us have ever prayed, ‘Lord make me an instrument of your peace,’ then found ourselves in complex and polarized situations that made peace seemingly impossible?
Make Me an Instrument of Peace is a 5-week course designed to help us bridge the divides that keep us from moving forward.
Designed by the Office of Government Relations of The Episcopal Church, and combining conversation, discussion and short videos, this course is ideal for those who want to take dialog between polarized people or parties seriously.
The first session will begin on Sunday, October 4 at 9:00am and run for about 50 minutes on Zoom. The remaining sessions will be held on October 11, 18, 25 and November 1 (all at 9:00 am). Each session will be led by St. Alban’s clergy, but will be ‘taught’ by a team of experts in civil discourse. This course includes these five sessions:
- Civil Discourse in Context with Ranjit Matthews
- Tenets for Civil Discourse with Shannon Ferguson
- Values-Based Conversations with Alan Yarborough
- The Complexities of Policy with Rebecca Linder Blachy
- Sacred Space for Debate with Marcus Halley
