2020 has been a year like no other in our nation. We have been bombarded with COVID-19, rampant racial discord, unprecedented political divide, and significant mistrust of the “other.” These same challenges plague our beloved United Methodist Church.

Braver Angels workshops teach communication skills for listening and speaking in today's polarized environment and create the experience of bringing together conservatives and liberals for a structured conversation that promotes understanding and relationship, searches for common ground, and maps differences accurately rather than based on stereotype.
