Fearless Dialogues is coming to Rio Texas, October 4 and 5, and you’re invited!
Do you feel God calling you or your church to reach new and different people? Do you want to help heal divisions in your community?
Fearless Dialogues is a grassroots organization committed to creating unique spaces for unlikely partners to engage in hard heartfelt conversations that see gifts in others, hear value in stories, and work for change and positive transformation in self and other. In brief, Fearless Dialogues retrains the eyes and ears of leaders to see gifts instead of stereotypes, and to hear value in the storied lives of others. From this shared space of meaning, where participants see and hear worth in others, the pump is primed for hard conversations and for cultivating hope that leads to sustainable change.
Learn more about Fearless Dialogues at www.fearlessdialogues.com. The program is based on the book by Dr. Gregory Ellison II, Fear+Less Dialogues: A New Movement for Justice. Dr. Ellison serves on the faculty of Candler School of Theology at Emory University. Read about our presenter, Rev. Dr. Georgette Ledgister, here.
This program will be offered in two parts, a longer day on Friday, October 4 (limited to 100 participants) and a briefer time over lunch, Saturday, October 5 (limited to 200 participants).
