Community Conversations

January 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This month, having recently passed the longest night of the year, we will gather to talk about the theme of light and dark, and the places we find hope during difficult times.
If you are interested in joining a conversation with curious and open-minded individuals, join us for a community conversation. These are not conversations you need to prepare for or have any advance or special knowledge, we welcome you to join us and share your own thoughts and feelings.
Basically, it goes like this: we get together for 90 minutes with other people from our city and spend time listening to each other. The evening is structured, so everybody gets a chance to talk, but not too much! Most of the time is spent in smaller groups, where it’s easy to share and get to know each other. And if you’re not a talker, you are always welcome to just listen.
Why do we do this? Because it’s really important—but also way too rare these days—to spend face-to-face time with people you don’t know very well. We keep coming because every time we do we learn something or see the world from a different perspective.
A strong community doesn’t just happen. It’s built by people actually spending time together, learning from one another and deepening relationships. That fabric becomes even stronger if it’s built among people from diverse groups.
So, we hope you’ll join us and see if this might be something that feels valuable to you.
