To the prophet Amos’ question: Can two walk together except they be agreed? The liberals reply: Yes, they can walk together despite disagreements. [But I caution that they cannot walk together] unless they can agree on some basic attitudes and values that they are freed to tolerate much diversity in other matters.

11:00 Service ~  Start with the Heart:
In the peace process the negotiator must help the parties define the problem so that they both recognize a dream or interest in common. Negotiation has been described as “a shared effort to solve a problem,” or in other words, common ground. One small success can pave the way for future negotiations making a peaceful solution possible where it once seemed impossible. Speaker: our minister Cathy Harrington.
