Everyday Peacemaking Program

Following up on The Defusing Hatred Program, the Everyday Peacemaking Program explores practical ideas for staying in conversation with others, conflict management, and how our spiritual practices help us stay calm in tense situations. Then we break into small groups to create a response to a particular, potential situation.

The presentation also helps kick off our new#CaringContraCosta campaign as we create a more caring, kind and compassionate Contra Costa County together through acts of understanding, dialogue, service and reconciliation. Attend to get your sticker and learn more!

We host this program with the hope of building communities of care and protection of the vulnerable around us, especially in this time of heightened tension and public acts of aggression. For more information, contact Rev. Will McGarvey at 925.597.9797 or eye4cee@gmail.com.
