The Red Bench: Interfaith Conversations that Matter
Tue, February 28, 2012 • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM • FUMC Family Life Center @ 1300 Lavaca Street
In conjunction with Light / The Holocaust & Humanity Project.
Interfaith Action of Central Texas (iACT) will collaborate with Ballet Austin and the Light Project by focusing one of its Red Bench Interfaith Dialogue programs on the topic of “resentment.” Holding onto resentment has been likened to drinking poison and wishing for someone else to die. Resentment is defended as a necessary human defensive response and as the root of genocide. What do the great faith traditions teach about resentment? And, how should we cope with the inevitable resentments we harbor in our own lives?
The Red Bench: Interfaith Conversations that Matter are centered on moderated small group discussions that are genuinely respectful and safe. No one has to be an expert and individual participants are invited to share from their personal experiences and listen with their hearts.
Light / The Holocaust & Humanity Project is a full-length contemporary ballet and Holocaust education partnership that promotes the protection of human rights against bigotry and hate through arts, education, and public dialogue. Light / The Holocaust & Humanity Project returns to Austin in 2012 from Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January 15) through Yom HaShoah or Holocaust Remembrance Day (April 19), with events/initiatives led by more than 30 community partners.
