Living in the Tension Gathering – Tuesday, Jan. 10th

After a little break for the holidays, we’re ready to get back at it with the Living in the Tension community gatherings. In line with this time of the year, we will be reflecting on instances in the past where efforts related to building bridges with those different than ourselves could have gone better to help us step forward in productive ways this year. We will also be taking time to hear thoughts about what individuals would like to address in the gatherings over the next year. We would still love to hear your thoughts even if you are not able to make it to the gatherings, so let us know about topics and issues that you feel would be worth working through and discussing.

We will be meeting this upcoming Tuesday, January 10th, at 7pm. We will be at 5255 N. Ashland Ave. in Room 120.

Much love.
