Recent years have seen increasing separation, hostility, and even hatred between identity groups, regions, religions, politics, and more. This escalation carries great dangers. The less we know about each other, the less we care about each other’s welfare, and the more our stereotypes and misconceptions multiply. Rather than uniting around the catastrophic issues facing our country, we blame, brood, label, dismiss, and damage each other. Following this path, everybody loses. What if, instead of devaluing other people, we reached out across the divides and culture wars to discover the fullness of their humanity? This talk will explore several dialogue programs designed to help us bridge our differences, bond, identify common ground, and profoundly deepen our understanding.
