Braver Angels Part 1: Depolarizing From Within

June 2 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

As members of a liberal faith community, we are called on to both live our values and interact respectfully and productively with family, friends, and other congregants who have very different views than our own. This two-part workshop, offered in partnership with Braver Angels (https://braverangels.org/), builds the skills to navigate these sometimes contradictory goals.

Part 1, Depolarizing from Within, supports us to

• Be more aware of our own “inner polarizer”

• Be critical without demonizing, dismissing or stereotyping large swaths of the population

• Develop strategies for intervening constructively in social conversations with like-minded peers when these conversations veer into contempt and ridicule for people who hold other views.

Learn more about Part 2, Skills for Disagreeing Better, will be held on Thursday, June 6, from 7:00-8:30pm.

Please register via Realm for both Parts1 (June 2) and 2 (June 6) by May 24. Questions? email STAR@firstparish.info
