St. Philip's hosts workshop on civil discourse | Events
The Outreach Commission and Border and Immigration Ministries at St. Philip’s In The Hills Episcopal Church present "Practicing Civil Discourse in an Uncivil World," on Saturday, April 13, from 9 a.m. till noon in the East Gallery.
Have you been tongue-tied in the face of hostile rhetoric? Have you struggled with how to begin a difficult conversation? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions then this workshop is for you! Catherine Tornbom of the Center for Community Dialogue will lead an exploration of tools and techniques to improve our ability to skillfully engage others. The workshop will be experiential in nature, so come prepared to participate — civil discourse is not a spectator sport!
Catherine Tornbom is the manager of the Center for Community Dialogue, focused on helping Southern Arizonans have conversations on difficult topics in a respectful and skilled way. She has over 30 years’ experience in organization development and alternative dispute resolution. St. Philippian Jane Prescott-Smith, of the National Institute for Civil Discourse, gives Ms. Tornbom high praise, “Catherine is a gifted trainer from whom I have learned a great deal. I am looking forward to the April 13 workshop with anticipation.”
