The Golden Rule in Politics: Living Room Conversation
April 5, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PDTFree
The Golden Rule in Politics
90-Minute Conversation with Optional 30-Minute Q&A with Hosts!
3:00 PM EASTERN / 12:00 PM PACIFIC (adjust for your time zone)
People with different theological and political views are coming together to express concern about the polarization and hostility that is tearing our country apart. We are deeply troubled by the prospect of an angry and hateful political campaign season in 2020 that would further divide us as a nation.
There is a belief that our country can find guidance through this dilemma in the spiritual teachings and practice of the Golden Rule – to “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”— especially as we engage in political activity. We believe that if enough people follow this Golden Rule principle, it will help generate the respect and kindness we so desperately need in our country.
HERE is the conversation guide. Please pay particular attention to the questions in Round 2.
Is there a fee to participate?
No, however, our work is made possible through the donations of generous supporters – who might include you! You can give when you scroll down to register for this event by selecting the “donation ticket” option.
