WITH MALICE TOWARD NONE
Saturday, November 21 and Sunday, November 22, 2020
Please plan to join us on the weekend of November 21 and 22 for one of a pair of post-election gatherings, one for those who supported the Trump/Pence ticket, and one for those who supported the Biden/Harris ticket.
- Those who supported the Trump/Pence ticket will meet Saturday, November 21 from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.
- Those who supported the Biden/Harris ticket will meet Sunday, November 22, from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m.
These meetings will take place over Zoom. PLEASE REGISTER BELOW! Those who RSVP below will receive an invitation email with login information approximately 24 hours before their event (we’ll also check for last-minute RSVPs and send those invitations as quickly as possible).
These gatherings, which form one part of Lewinsville’s participation in the Braver Angels With Malice Toward None initiative, are designed to promote dialogue, healing, and a renewed sense of common civic purpose among Americans of varying political orientations in the wake of an election which reflected deep divisions in our nation. Participants in the November gatherings will receive an invitation to a joint follow-up gathering, tentatively scheduled for the morning of Saturday, January 9.
Through our engagement with this project, unanimously affirmed by Session at its October meeting, we hope to renew Lewinsville’s commitment to being a congregation where people of differing political convictions can feel welcome, and where we can discuss the intersections between faith and policy with respect for the diverse ways that Christians seek to live out their faith in the public sphere. We also hope that the gatherings will offer an opportunity to begin the work of discerning God’s will for us, individually and collectively, as we move forward into 2021 and beyond.
If you have any questions, please contact one of the co-chairs of the Faith and Public Policy committee, Jill Cook (“red”/Republican; firstname.lastname@example.org) or Cathy Saunders (“blue”/Democrat; email@example.com).
