Our faith community is made up of many different religious denominations. They are using Living Room Conversations to deepen relationships within their communities, address tensions, invite neighbors in and even talk to sister faith communities, both locally and in other states. Congregations that are holding conversations on a regular basis tell us that they are seeing more openness, curiosity and respect and that members are reporting a greater sense of belonging.
One thing that connects all of the great faith traditions is a version of the Golden Rule: “Treat others as you wish to be treated and love thy neighbor.” Because faith communities are where people go to become who they aspire to be, conversations in these communities are a powerful way to build belonging and heal the divides in our country.
We can help you in the following ways:
– Help you decide which conversations to begin with
– Share best practices from our growing faith community
– Direct you to one of our regularly scheduled host trainings
– Match you with a “sister congregation” to hold conversations
Please contact our Faith Communities Team using the form below. We’d love to help you get your conversations started.
