The Aldea community begins a new series this week: Civility: Finding the common good in a fragmented world. Today we begin by examining the tricky terrain of civility. We also explore what it takes to treat each other well at the borders of our disagreements. 

 

Viewing and Listening Options

There are both audio and video versions of the conversation. The audio conversation can be listened to in its entirety by clicking the audio file (at the bottom of this page) or on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. The video version is separated into three videos: a guided meditation (this is not on the audio version), the main conversation, and an After-Cast that augments the main conversation with more insights to explore. 

You can control the pacing of the experience by stopping and advancing the videos as you see fit. After you watch, download the guide and use it as an on ramp for personal reflection or group discussion. Don’t feel like you have to cover everything in the guide or even watch the entire video. Watch what you can and find the helpful elements on the guide. The guide is meant to stimulate thoughts and conversation. Use it to support your own exploration.
