World Cafe Community Conversations


What? –  Please join fellow Presbyterians, community partners, civic leaders, friends and family for one (or more) community conversations across our presbytery.

Why? –  Our communities face daunting and complex realities of violence, segregation, discrimination, and despair. Every day we contend with great injustice and suffering. But strengths, gifting, and assets also dwell deep within our communities, and we believe that a new way is possible as we build on our collective strengths: a way of peace, unity, and hope… a way of justice, mercy, and joy! We believe that love in action has the power to transform all of our communities. So we are asking you to the table to believe with us. To come with an open mind, open heart, and open will – leaving fear, judgment, and cynicism behind – so that we may join together, to envision a future that is bigger than each one of us.
