Now more than ever US citizens are polarized and at each others throats. With Thanksgiving coming up, some folks are dreading heading home and landing dab smack into the middle of awkward or even outright nasty family conversations about politics.
Fortunately for you there are two new resources you can hear that will help you navigate these challenging political waters.
Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, a climate scientist and a brilliant climate communicator, joined forces with Young Evangelicals for Climate Action, to create an audio guide, How to Talk about Climate Change at Thanksgiving Dinner.
She includes her signature humor and some important insights that comes from her unique background as a Canadian Evangelical living in Texas and doing climate work.
Another resource is my latest episode of Citizens Climate Radio. I speak with two Conservative Christian students from East Tennessee State University. Once they arrived on campus soon after the 20216 election, they grew concerned about the rancor between Reds and Blues. They decided to foster community conversations through the Better Angels program. It is lovely hearing these young men share strategies for leading conversations that result in friendship and understanding.
