Be Heard about Patriotism
What does it mean to be patriotic today? Are you proud to be an American? Do you think that the Right has hijacked patriotism and the flag? Do you think the Left isn't patriotic enough?
Time & Location
Sep 16, 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM PDT
About the Event
Like many areas in American life, patriotism has become yet another arena in which we experience division. There's a sense of "if you're not with us, you're against us." We seem to have lost the ability to bring nuance and understanding to those with a different view of what it is to be a proud American.
As always, it's our intention to have all voices be heard. Come share your experience and your views in this conversation in which we might respectfully disagree, but where we will ultimately bridge the cultural divide.
If you haven't joined us before, please know that our Round Tables are a respectful place where people with varied backgrounds and beliefs can vulnerably voice their experience with the "other." We will have ground rules to set up a brave space where you can speak from your own experience, and share your own story of what it is like to have your view. We will not be debating or convincing each other. Please note, you do not have to speak to participate and experience the benefits.
- You will feel heard about your experience of our current reality
- You will deepen your ability to hear others – even those you disagree with
- And you will be inspired to take actions to create a world where love wins
This event is free, but you must pre-register. And yes, please invite your friends, especially those who have a different view than you. We welcome all who are willing to participate with an open mind and open heart!
