Building Community in Trump's America
America has been forever altered. This election has taken a toll on all of us; on our families, our friendships, our religious traditions, our faith communities, perhaps even our image of God itself.
How can we respond to these days in a way that is redemptive? How we can create or renovate community in a way that transcends the differences that have been exposed and the wounds we've received? What does the the bigger table look like in Trump's America?
Join Pastor/Blogger John Pavlovitz for an honest conversation about the mess we've come through and the possible way forward.
Building a Bigger Table
No one likes to eat alone; to approach a table filled with people, only to be told that despite the open chairs there isn't room for you. Yet this is exactly what too many people have been hearing for far too long. How can we extend unconditional welcome and acceptance in a world increasingly marked by bigotry, fear, and exclusion?
John Pavlovitz invites us into a conversation about finding or building community that is big enough for everyone. He'll share moving personal stories as well as his careful observations as a pastor, to set the table for a new, more loving conversation on these and other important matters of life and faith.
