Introduction, Workshop 8: New Habits of the Heart

In "A Chorus of Faiths," a Tapestry of Faith program

Generosity of the spirit is ... the ability to acknowledge an interconnectedness—one's debts to society—that binds one to others whether one wants to accept it or not. It is also the ability to engage in the caring that nurtures that interconnectedness. It is a virtue that everyone should strive for, even though few people have a lot of it—a virtue the practice of which gives meaning to the frustrations of political work and the inevitable loneliness of the separate self. It is a virtue that leads one into community work and is sustained by such involvements. — Robert Bellah, sociologist, in Habits of the Heart

This final workshop offers opportunities to reflect on the program and integrate experiences into plans and future behaviors. To make this workshop more celebratory, add refreshments. Remember to check for food allergies.
