How to Build a Bridge: Hearing and Being Heard
We all recognize the polarization that plagues our current political and religious discussions. Communication is hard. Christians want to stand for the truth but are often unsure how to obey Paul’s command to speak the truth in love. In the end, we all have a lot to learn about speaking as we wish to be spoken to and hearing others as we wish to be heard.
Join us at Gutenberg College on Thursday and Friday nights August 4th & 5th and all day Saturday August 6th to explore the nature of communication within the context of loving our neighbor.
Last year I had the pleasure of attending the Summer Institute. Having been a loyal but internet-only student of Gutenberg College/McKenzie Study Center for over 20 years, I was very grateful for the opportunity to have finally met and been taught in person by the tutors and instructors of Gutenberg. After 35 years in the education field, I have had a lot of exposure to educators and classes. This faculty and these classes were top notch. The teaching and the discussions were first-rate; full of thoughtful, interesting, and challenging conversations. The Summer Institute far exceeded my expectations. –Robin Jarvis
