What role does the faith community have in civic life? Can the faith community provide a good model for achieving constructive engagement across differences?
As part of The Season For Nonviolence, HARC is offering this program — which is based on the “Better Arguments Project” framework — to encourage participants to think about the influence of faith and spirituality as they seek to engage in constructive discourse with those of differing views. It will also provide tools to decrease both verbal and physical violence and promote peace.
Conflict is a natural part of the human experience. HARC’s goal is to practice this framework with faith leaders so you can take the resource back to your congregations and community groups. For more information on the Better Arguments Project, visit www.betterarguments.org.
Thank you to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church for hosting and providing the meal. Join us for lunch and fellowship, sharing of our host’s faith tradition, followed by the program. RSVP requested by Friday, February 10 at noon so we can get a count for lunch.
HARC meetings are typically held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month for lunch, except July and August, with an occasional evening meeting. When meeting in-person, the location typically rotates among different houses of faith, giving different congregations and organizations an opportunity to host. If in-person meetings are decided to be unsafe for our members, they will be held on Zoom.
