The Sunday Salon: Breaking Down the Dividing Walls

[fblikesend]

Many tend to think of community in terms of commonality. But we wonder about that. Could it be that authentic community is born not of sameness but of difference? Could it be that diversity and variety, far from keeping us apart, are precisely what bind us together? Could it be that we are united not by common answers to the same old questions but by common questions to the same old answers? If this sounds like a strange but nonetheless intriguing possibility… welcome to The Front Porch!

At our weekly Sunday Salon we gather to explore the ways in which our differences can actually serve to enrich rather than threaten. As our resident chanteuse Julia Ward observed this past Sunday, there are indeed two opposing forces in the world, but they are not those we typically imagine. They are not good and evil, but love and fear. Fear leads to division, love leads to dialogue; fear inspires rivalry, love inspires reverence; fear builds walls, love breaks them down.

Join us for conversation and song at our weekly Salon: Sundays, 6 p.m. at The Historic Victory Grill.
