Can we come together and work toward common goals - Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon

The recent election further highlights how divided we are as a nation. At Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, we don‘t think there are any easy answers. In fact, pretending like it‘s easy and that we don‘t have real differences can actually be offensive. People are passionate about their ideas, and they should be. This year‘s Collins Summit explores the question of whether we can come together and work toward common goals. What might healing our nation look like? Too soon? Impossible? Join us as we explore these and other challenging questions.

Through a special virtual format, we will explore these racial, political and social divisions, asking how we bring our whole selves to the table and stay engaged in light of our differences, not in spite of them.

Featured speaker: Lisa Sharon Harper. Ms Harper is one of today‘s leading voices on the topics of poverty, racial and gender justice and transformational civic engagement.

RWV Pre-Thanksgiving Gathering

A few of us are getting together Wednesday afternoon to discuss "Nature, Beauty and Gratitude," a TED Talk featuring cinematographer Louie Schwartzberg. Then we‘ll share our own gratitude stories. We hope you will join us!

What‘s your pandemic silver lining? Mine are quite prosaic: pandemic hair and masks have made sunscreen unnecessary and OHSU no longer has shared patient rooms. I‘m grateful for both.

Watch the TED Talk ahead of time; it will take just 10 minutes.
