As we prepare to welcome Christ into our midst, let us prepare to welcome and connect with each other.
Advent – the liturgical season of preparation – offers us the opportunity to prepare our hearts for the coming of the Christ Child. It also offers us the opportunity to prepare ourselves for family gatherings during the holiday season which – for some of us – bring the challenge of engaging across differences.
On December 2, 9, and 16 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, our diocesan “One in the Spirit” ministry will be hosting an Advent series of virtual conversations structured around “From Many, One: Conversations Across Difference” — the initiative inviting Episcopalians and our neighbors to engage in one-to-one listening and sharing across the many differences that challenge us. Participants will have a chance to see how this framework can enable them to communicate with others with whom they disagree on contentious issues and transform their relationships in the process.
