We're exploring whether the work of "bridge-building" can be done without perpetuating harm in such mistrustful and divided times. We know shallow appeals to "unity" can often invalidate trauma and fail to account for the deep roots of polarization. Yet, as people of faith, we are called to build and inhabit the Beloved Community outside and beyond our ideological barriers. A panel of practitioners — including Rev. Dr. Becca Stevens, Rev. Jennifer Bailey, Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, Tim Dixon, and Rev. Dr. Randy Woodley — from a wide variety of fields will offer practical insight for navigating this work as teaching artist Joann Lee Kim illustrates the conversation through live painting.
