Did the cure for our culture of contempt come to Avon June 4?

Every problem has a solution. The solution to our current social and political unrest is love, kindness, and civility. The solution came to Avon Congregational Church on Saturday, June 4 via a proactive workshop run by the co-founders of Houston’s Institute for Civility in Government (ICG). I hope we consider it.

You’ve seen countless times in our current culture where people on opposite sides of big issues (immigration, abortion, gun regulation, you name it) demonize each other. My side is right, their side is evil. So says Arthur C. Brooks in his book about him, Love Your Enemies: How Decent People Can Save America From The Culture Of Contempt. The book was recommended reading for the Avon workshop run by ICG’s co-founders Cassandra Dahnke and Tomas Spath.
