The NT-NL Public Witness Team for Peace & Justice are partnering with the United States Christian Leadership Organization (USCLO), Charter for Compassion Social Justice Sector, and Kairos + Collaborative to offer this set of FREE online episodes and practice sessions to help Make This Your Year to Cultivate Compassion!
“You’re invited to spend 2023 growing compassion for yourself, your friends, and even those who today you might describe as enemies. We’ll interrogate our emotions, reasoning, decision-making, and more as we work to join the infinite game of building peace.”
Specifically about this April 27 session:
“What gets us into trouble is not what we don’t know. It’s what we know for sure that just ain’t so.” That observation is often attributed to Mark Twain but, ironically, one thing we don’t actually know is who first said it. Adam Grant invites us to explore ways in which “knowing” and “certainty” keep us from learning and growing. As we work to cultivate compassion, approaching ourselves and others with curiosity primes us to learn. Even more importantly, this intellectual humility positions us to to connect with others more effectively.
