Faith Roundtable: POWER!?
March 16, 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Third Thursdays of Every Month
127 West 127th St, Room 432 

“Power” is complicated! What is the difference between the meaning of power when we talk about “power and control” and the power in “empowerment?” Since power is so closely linked to violence, are there kinds of power that lead to peace? What do our faith traditions and spiritual experiences teach us about power? How does power show up in our daily lives? 

Join us for a lively discussion as we explore these questions.
 
All are welcome! Light refreshments will be served.
RSVP Requested.
