“The deep secret of America is not that its passions have become binary; it’s that binary passions give us a free pass that we’ve confused with our freedoms.” - Tom Junod
Next week, October 30th, the fourth season of The Red Bench: Interfaith Conversations that Matter, continues with a dialogue about “Civility and Polarization in American Culture.” In this dialogue we will explore our own individual responses to the deepening political divide in our nation and its impact on our culture and our ability to govern ourselves in a civil manner. As always, we invite you to bring your life experiences and deepest beliefs to what should prove to be an inspiring, and we hope, thought-provoking conversation. Please reach out to others in your faith community or within your circle of friends and invite them to participate in this program!
