Adult Forum: Parker Palmer and Healing the Heart of Democracy

  • St. Barnabas Church 1280 Vine Street Denver, CO, 80206 United States

Adult Forum begins a series based on the book Healing the Heart of Democracy (Jossey-Bass 2011) by Parker J Palmer and its companion website www.couragerenewal.org.  Quaker activist, writer & educator Parker J. Palmer addresses the central questions in American politics today:  How has our democracy become so captive to partisanship and factionalism that it is virtually powerless to act on the real issues of our time, and what can we as individuals and communities of faith do to heal it?  Our first discussion will look at the suffering in America, kick-started by brief readings from current events and a short video from the website.

Please join us in Grant Hall at 11:00 a.m.   No preparation required but both the book and website are worth exploring!
