Leading Difficult Conversations
We believe the church is uniquely situated to lead our communities in how to engage around "hot topics" in a way that is not divisive. Through the deliberative dialogue process we seek to encourage and welcome differences of opinion while, at the same time, identifying our common core values and giving voice to all who deserve to be heard.
Using guides produced by the National Issues Forum and led by Rev. Dr. Leah Schade, our team is trained to lead and to train others to lead deliberative dialogue workshops. If you'd like to attend one of these workshops, check out our upcoming events.
