People You Know conversation workshop about Why Marriage Matters in Arizona

August 23, 9:30 am to 12:30 pm

First Christian Church, Mesa


Several congregations will be joining together for the training.

Our goals are to learn how to:

  • deepen community
  • engage in conversation in support of marriage equality for all loving committed couples
  • listen gracefully to the opinions of others

We know messages that work and want to share them with you.  We trust you will leave the workshop inspirited, confident, and ready to talk to people you know about our shared values of love, commitment, family, and marriage.

The faith team from Why Marriage Matters AZ looks forward to meeting you on August 23rd for this in-depth conversation.  We will also share lunch following our workshop, hosted by First Christian Church.

We ask that you register by emailing Liz Nelson at mesafirst@yahoo.com.
