COMMON GROUND, HIGHER GROUND
Mission: Coming together on Common Ground, moving together to Higher Ground
Our work can be described as an undertaking of two important goals;
- Coming Together on Common Ground – a convening of the community to negotiate differences and create understanding and appreciation of the diversity present among us.
- Moving Together to Higher Ground – an initiative to lead, inspire and elevate the community to a more morally and ethically perfected state of being…a community that advocates for a fair, just, equitable and inclusive Dallas where we ALL have the opportunity to thrive and flourish.
The Convener Newsletter
I told you in an earlier Convener newsletter that Thanks-Giving Square has no institutional political or religious ideology, and thus in these areas we have no agenda to advance. Our views are neither conservative nor liberal. We don’t prefer dogs over cats, and we don’t express an opinion on beef vs. fish! We remain neutral on most things. This neutrality makes Thanks-Giving Square the ideal convener of thoughtful, diverse idea exchange on topics of importance to our community. Watch for more programming that probes at the issues and questions of the day. Convening Conversations That Matter is one of the ways we seek to lead the way to Higher Ground.
Have you noticed that the Universe loves gratitude? The more grateful you are, the more goodies you get. When I say “goodies,” I don’t mean only material things. I mean all the people, places, and experiences that make life so wonderfully worth living. You know how great you feel when your life is filled with love and joy and health and creativity, and you get the green lights and the parking places. This is how our lives are meant to be lived. The Universe is a generous, abundant giver, and it likes to be appreciated.
