On January 29, Rev. Dr. Larry Peers graced us with the sermon “Fearlessly Curious Conversations,” inspired by Monica Guzman’s work, “I Never Thought of It That Way: How to Have Fearlessly Curious Conversations in Dangerously Divided Times.” Those who had read this book and those who found themselves inspired to know more about this work had deep reactions and questions, leading us to move forward scheduling time to discuss each of the five (5) chapters of this work. Consecutive attendance is not a requirement, join us when your schedule permits. After registration you will receive a Summary Guide of that month’s chapter that will assist you in being an active participant. Some participants will have read the book a while ago, while others may not have finished it or even started this book. The goal of these sessions is engagement, not the study of the work. Please register at this link.
