Dinner with Our Neighbors: Non-violence as a theme

We had a dinner on July 6 for our neighbors.  Most of the neighbors came from 20th to 25th Street.  After introductions, we facilitated table conversations about “what our neighborhood looks like at its best.”  The quotes are now posted in our parish hall.  It was striking how much our neighbors were for non-violence right on the eve of all of the violence across the nation that occurred in the two weeks following our dinner.
