Make Me an Instrument of Peace: A Guide to Civil Discourse

Online Zoom Webinar


Political divides are growing deeper, and many of us look to ahead in 2020 with concern and worry Peacebuilding involves learning from and working with others, while also sharing different perspectives with humility and vulnerability. To solve our world’s greatest challenges, we must learn to unlock the diversity of ideas and viewpoints as an asset for creating stronger solutions. Alan Yarborough of the Episcopal Church's Office of Government Relations leads this civil discourse training designed to enhance our ability to learn from and understand one another, and to apply that practice to public policy conversations.

We begin on Monday, May 11th with an introduction to the training and the top 5 most important steps to Civil Discourse.

Each week following, participants will be asked to complete one unit of the course on their own (In order of 1-5) then have an opportunity for discussion with Alan for 5 weeks, beginning Wednesday, May 20 at 1:00 p.m. and every following Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. through June 17th. Sessions are about an hour. 

During our small group time with Alan, we will go through the discussion questions at the end of each unit and get to ask Alan other questions or concerns that may come up for you during each unit.
