In this globally interconnected, lopsided world—marked by disparities, discord and violence—what witness can the church bring to the many issues that divide us from one another and the shared ecology in which we live? We are in need of theologies that will lead us in new directions–from opposition and dominance to new community and mutual respect for one another and all living creatures of Earth.

The Ethic of Inclusion: Getting Un-Stuck

Wednesdays, October 12, 19, and 26, 2016
6:30 – 8:30 pm

During this highly politicized election year when exclusionary rhetoric often “shuts down” genuine conversation and cynicism too often “passes” for wisdom, come explore what is meant by “the ethic of inclusion.”
What ethical principles drive our thoughts and interactions on current issues? Ethics comes in more than one stripe. Ken Wilber’s integral paradigm and principles from the Arbinger Institute’s Anatomy of Peace will help illuminate the subtle ways we all get trapped in boxes of our own making that undermine our best intentions to actually be inclusive. Over a 3-week period, we’ll reflect on not only how we get stuck but how we can get un-stuck so that we can engage in more authentic conversation with others who have very differing views.
