Coffee Talk: Agreeing to Disagree


Join FāVS panelist for a discussion on “Agreeing to Disagree” at this next Coffee Talk, on April 6.

The term refers to resolving a conflict by tolerating another’s opinion, but not necessarily accepting it, which is easier said than done.

Panelists are: Rev. Katy Shedlock of Creator’s Table, The Very Rev. Heather Vandeventer, dean of St. John’s Cathedral, and FāVS writers Cassy Benefield, Neal Schindler and Gonzaga Wolff Fellow Matthew Williams.

FāVS hosts Coffee Talks on the first Saturday of every other month, as a way for the community to come together to discuss issues surrounding faith and ethics. The April 6 Coffee Talk will be at 10 a.m. at Origin Church, 5115 S. Freya (which will soon be the new FāVS interfaith center). Coffee will be provided, though donations are accepted.
