Finding common ground when it seems impossible
How to overcome economic, racial, and other divisions will be considered at Lifetree Café.
The program, titled “Coming Together: Finding Common Ground When It Seems Impossible,” features a screening of the lighthearted, award-winning South African short film “Kanyekanye.”
The film follows the romance of a young man and woman who live in an imaginary town divided by a disagreement about what color apple is best. When Thomas, from the green-apple side of town, falls in love with Thandi, whose family favors red apples, tensions rise.
Participants will consider what issues divide their own families and communities and explore practical ways to overcome those divisions.
When: Sunday, March 1 at 7:00 pm
Where: Cafe at New Beginnings
