Please join us on Sunday (19 March 2017) at 9:15 AM for our adult religious education class. We will continue our discussion of the book Dignity: The Essential Role It Plays in Resolving Conflict by Donna Hicks, PhD.
For this week we are covering chapters 15 through 18.
Our reading for this week continues to unpack each of the “ten temptations” that can cause us to violate the dignity of others as well as our own.
In class, we will continue reviewing the ten essential elements of dignity and begin our discussion of the ten temptations.
In her work with businesses, schools, organizations, and governments, Donna Hicks has come to draw a distinction between “respect” and “dignity.”
We often see respect as something that must be earned, or can be lost.
We do not have to respect bad behavior, but we do need to grant each person basic dignity, just as we are entitled to claim that for ourselves.
This is an important book for these contentious times, and we hope to make it a congregational, and even a community read.
We have a few more books available for purchase (or just to have and read if money is an obstacle).
