Creating Community: Spreading Love, Eradicating Hate
 
Our congregation has recently created a committee, called Creating Community, which is dedicated to spreading LOVE and eradicating hate through education, understanding, tolerance, and positive action.  While everyone talks generally about love, there is very little discussion about how specifically to promote love in our everyday lives.  Therefore, we have come up with a vision.

Our plan is to create a series of workshop events where we invite the public to a 1-2 hour program
consisting of a presenter, a small group discussion, followed by a large group discussion.  The presenters would be professionals who work to promote understanding and tolerance.  The discussions would be focused on: what specifically can I do to promote love and good will in my community?  How am I going to change my behavior? How can I make a difference? We will be inviting congregations of all faiths, as well as secular groups and individuals to attend.  We see HOPE as a catalyst for promoting positive discussion on these issues.  Watch for  announcements of upcoming events!

If you want more information, or would like to participate in the planning, please contact Renee Clark at renee@reneeclarkhomes.com
