A Language of Healing for a Polarized Nation

Three Wednesday evenings, beginning January 13 | 7 - 8:30PM

Making space to hear, to know, and to care for people “not in our tribe” may be one of the most urgent and transformative things we could be doing.  In this bitterly divided era in American society and politics, may we who seek to be Jesus-followers live out our vocation as reconcilers and peacemakers with love and justice. A Language of Healing could be just the right practical help for our next steps at this important time.

Don’t miss this special, 3-week series as we are joined by the authors of A Language of Healing for a Polarized Nation, Wayne Jacobsen, Arnita Willis Taylor, and Robert L. Prater, and the clergy of Christ Church Cranbrook as we expand our vocabulary in the language of peacemaking.

For those looking to go deeper, you can find the book, A Language of Healing for a Polarized Nationonline here.

This series is open to the community – all welcome!
