You are invited to experience something different. Different because it’s not common. Different because it’s counter-cultural.

It’s called POV (or Point of View).
 
POV is a one day experience that makes space for engaging difficult conversations through the lens of empathy, context and mission. A space where you can bring your thoughts, questions, emotions, and heart without the fear of being judged or coerced.
 
It’s uncommon because in our polarized world, there not many spaces left that don’t have dividing lines. It’s counter-cultural because often we are sold a false narrative of in or out, us or them, black or white.
At POV, were all in, were all us, and were aren’t just black or white, our ideas are expressed in a spectrum of color.
 
We listen, we share, we reflect, we engage.
 
So if you want to come to an uncommon experience and grow in empathy, come to the first ever POV. Our conversation will be around “Preparing the Way Forward.” This experience has been designed with help from the Florida Annual Conference and is meant to help prepare for the ongoing work and conversation around the Way Forward. You can learn more about the Way Forward at www.umc.org/wayforward.
 
We hope you will consider joining us and contributing your POV. We would love to hear it.
 
Our POV experience will be on Saturday, February 2nd from 9:00 am until 3:30 pm in Fellowship Hall. Lunch and snacks will be provided.
 
Please RSVP to the office by Wednesday, January 30th to ensure we have enough provisions.
