Fierce Love: Interrupting Hate in Private and Public Spaces. 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Resolutions Northwest, 2538 NE Broadway Suite A, Portland. People of faith agree that we are morally responsible for creating beloved community here in this realm. As tensions flare and incidents of public hate skyrocket, join us as we explore the theological and scriptural foundations of this call to fierce love. Using skills, tools and methodologies proven over decades of use from Pace e Bene and Training Active Bystanders, we will learn how to build a culture of peace by engaging in active nonviolence. Join us for one of our first three offerings. Registration costs $75.
