TITLE: “Can’t We All Just Get Along?”
DESCRIPTION: The divisions in our society can sometimes seem deep and wide regarding issues related to culture, religion, and politics. We will take a look at this from the perspective of intercultural sensitivity. Are there clues and concepts that can help us in our quest toward greater understanding and acceptance and a more peaceful society? Ultimately, can we learn to get along in the pursuit of creating a better world, together? We’ll have that conversation on Sunday, May 5.
