MPB Justice Matters
Living Room Conversations:
The Justice Matter Ministry is excited to offer this opportunity to have stimulating conversations on a variety of topics. Living Room Conversations are a conversational bridge across issues that may divide and separate us. They provide an easy structure for engaging in friendly yet meaningful conversation. These conversations increase understanding, reveal common ground, and can help us build community during these times of isolation. This is an opportunity to become acquainted with others within our Most Precious Blood community. In doing so, it allows us to build on one of the pillars of MPB — a strong sense of caring for, and being attentive to the needs of one another.
We've chosen a series, "The Four Sacred Gifts", as our starting point. Sign up for one or all, you choose.
More about the series from "Living Room Conversations":
COVID-19 breaks through the artificial divisions we erect between us. Different races? Countries? Incomes? Political parties? None of us are immune. We can infect each other, and we can heal each other. The wide-ranging implications of our unbreakable human connection are suddenly impossible to ignore. Yet, in so many facets of life, we act like we’re separate, alone.
For Anita Sanchez, PhD., Aztec and Mexican American, transformational leadership and corporate consultant, this causes needless suffering, further division, and reckless destruction. Dr. Sanchez is the author of The Four Sacred Gifts: Indigenous Wisdom for Modern Times. Living Room Conversations collaborated with Dr. Sanchez to develop a new conversation series exploring each of the Four Sacred Gifts, which are:
1. The Power of Unity: Wednesday, May 13 9:00 am-10:30 am
Unity Conversation Guide
2. The Power to Heal: Wednesday, May 20 6:30 pm- 8:00 pm
Healing Conversation Guide
3. Forgiveness : Thursday, May 28 9:00 am-10:30 am
Forgiveness Conversation Guide
4. The Power of Hope: Thursday, June 4 6:30 pm-8:00 pm
Hope Conversation Guide
According to Sanchez, these gifts are innate in every person walking the earth right now, but each person makes the choice whether or not to use them.
The Four Sacred Gifts series helps deepen our capacity to awaken our natural gifts and grow in understanding and love of ourselves, and each other. We invite you to participate in one or more of these four conversations.
Conversations will be held on ZOOM. Each coinversation is 90 minutes. You will receive addtional information a few days before the conversation.
