JUST Listening for Justice: A community training and conversation for healing
Curtin Hall, 101 Mercy Drive, Belmont, NC 28012

As our communities and planet continue suffering from injustice, hate, and disease, we are now experiencing intense political divisiveness and strained public discourse. Whether in our local community or on the national and global political stage, civil discourse is necessary for peacemaking and community building. For effective discourse, listening ‒ deep listening ‒ is required. In times of fear and anxiety listening can again become an effective tool. Come to this workshop on listening as the ultimate act of justice.

Stories of Faith, Hope, and Love: Being Brave in Difficult Times

The world is not made of atoms. It is made of stories.” Muriel Ruykeser

Friday evening April 13- Sunday Noon April 15

Telling our stories connects us deeply to where we have been, where we are now, and where we are going. Telling them to each other forges bonds, builds bridges, and expands our understanding of ourselves and our interconnectedness. It takes courage to live and speak our truth; mining the wisdom of our own and others’ lives helps us tap into our own well of courage so that we can be act bravely, even or perhaps especially in these troubled times.

Come explore and share your own stories of faith, hope, and love in the company of other women at the beautiful Jersey shore. We hope to gather an inclusive group of women to ensure the widest and deepest possible experience for all.

Registration Details will be posted soon!
