  • Dr. Emilie Townes says that living in community means that we might have to give up personal preference for the good of the whole. How can we, in our diverse communities, live in to this call?
  • Dean Townes mentions that within community, there must be a give and take. How do we ask for the things that we need from our community? Are we fully giving of ourselves within our communities?
  • How does listening and hearing the needs of others create space for compromise?
  • Townes speaks to the complexity of this process. In what ways can we recognize and embrace differences without letting anger influence us?
