Carrie Newcomer/Parker Palmer Concert - 7 p.m.
Friday, April 27, 2012, 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
A Gathering of Spirits for the Common Good
Carrie Newcomer and Parker J. Palmer join forces for an evening of song and spoken word to take us on a three-stage journey of hope:
- Celebrating “We the People”
- Exploring the power of “The Broken-Open Heart”
- Inviting us to reflect on “How Then Shall We Live?”
Experience an evening of song and spoken word that invites us to imagine and live into “a politics worthy of the human spirit.” Can we set free what Lincoln called “the better angels of our nature?” In an era of “the politics of rage,” can we seek the common good across all that might divide us, coming together as friends, neighbors, citizens, and members of a larger community upon which we all depend?
Sponsored by Madison/Dane County Courage to Teach, Joe and Mary Ellyn Sensenbrenner and First United Methodist Church.
Tickets: Advance Ticket Purchase - $20.00, At The Door - $25.00
Doors open at 6 p.m.
Advanced tickets available thru Wednesday, April 25.
Proceeds from the evening will go to support Dane County Courage to Teach, a yearlong retreat series that allows educators to reconnect with their core values and passion for teaching, enabling them to be more deeply engaged with their students, subjects, and colleagues.
