VIDEO: Coffee Talk – Agreeing to Disagree

On April 6 FāVS panelists discussed “Agreeing to Disagree” at Coffee Talk.

Below is video of the full discussion.

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

Panelists were: 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 regularly as a way for the community to come together to discuss issues surrounding faith and ethics.
