The people of Zimbabwe aren’t the only ones in need of healing and reconciliation…

We’ve been in conversation with the Institute for Faith and Politics in Washington DC hoping to do an event that will address the polarization and animosity that exists within the political culture of the U.S.  It now looks like we’ll co-sponsor an evening event, on the hill, that will focus on the difficult emotions that arise when working with people on opposite sides of the political spectrum.  Faith and Politics works with congressional leaders and staff, seeking to remind them of the values that come from faith traditions.  We’re working on recruiting both a Democrat and Republican congressperson to sponsor the event.  The evening event is tentatively scheduled for April 28th, 2010 and will be aimed at congressional leaders.  Following the evening presentation we’ll do a day long workshop, in Washington, open to the public.  The working title for the daylong workshop is “Working with Difficult People Without Losing Your Soul.”  We’re still working on a location.  The workshop which will be free.  More later…
