Episcopal Church: From Many, One: Conversations Across Difference

From Many, One: Conversations Across Difference invites Episcopalians and our neighbors to engage in one-to-one listening and sharing across the many differences that separate us. Echoing the Latin phrase “e pluribus unum” – from many, one – and following in the footsteps of Jesus, we trust the spiritual practice of conversation across difference can knit us all into a diverse, more perfect union. It all starts with the four simple questions above. Sign up for updates on From Many, One, launching in January 2021. Watch the videos. Invite a partner. Have the conversation. Pray. Join in deeper conversation, learning and action. Help to form God’s beloved community.
