In a Nutshell: It was originally developed Singleton (M.Ed., Stanford) to support adults in having the conversations necessary to make progress on difficult subjects such as race, racism, ethnicity, and privilege. The main components include: Four agreements; Six Conditions; the mindset compass; and the operational definitions. By using these components, the facilitator supports participants in pushing to sustain difficult dialogue while upholding the agreements; leveraging the compass for check­ ins; and adhering to the six conditions. The end result is a robust, experience ­driven dialogue that deepens the group’s collective understanding while broadening each individual’s perspective.

Christian Purpose to Frame Our Dialogue & Discussion

What might happen if we decide to engage in courageous conversations? We might have to swallow our pride. We might name some of our deepest fears. We might engage in some painful and scary conversations with those closest to us. We also might learn to express our deepest desires more clearly for others to meet. We might learn to hear someone’s perspective that challenges us to new heights in our relationship with God and others. A scarier question might be, “What if we fail to engage in courageous conversations?” Growing as a disciple often requires hard work on our part. It takes the courage of posturing ourselves with openness and curiosity like Nathanael and like Jesus did in offering grace and truth. We end with Margaret Wheatley’s advice, “I hope you’ll begin a conversation, listening for what’s new. Listen as best you can for what’s different, for what surprises you. See if this practice helps you learn something new.”


“Building a Sustainable Milwaukee”

Good Shepard Trinity Church will be hosting “Building a Sustainable Milwaukee” presentation which will be lead by Damon Dorsey, former Economic Director of Milwaukee and the former Director of the North Avenue Community Development Corporation, for a discussion: “Moving beyond racism to building a sustainable Milwaukee.”


Talk on Milwaukee often centers on the issue of racism. Yet, in places around the country the discussion increasingly is “what does a sustainable community look like - in spite of racism.”  This discussion will focus on what a truly sustainable Milwaukee will look like for all of its residents.
