Nurturing the Light in Times of Darkness: Difficult Conversations (for Difficult Times)

Sunday, November 12, 2017
9:00 am10:00 am
Baltimore Monthly Meeting, Stony Run (Baltimore, MD)

Winter is approaching. The days grow shorter. It can also feel like a time of political darkness, one that can trigger dark feelings. How important it is to nurture and share our light! Please come to this conversation, beginning at 9:00am, as we love and enlighten one another. Each will begin at 9:00am. A child says to a parent that she feels threatened by things happening in the world. How to respond? And how to talk (or not talk) to a co-worker or family member on the opposite end of the political spectrum? What to say to a worried immigrant? How to skillfully and lovingly handle these and other hard conversations? —we’ll put our minds and hearts together.
