The elections are coming up! Talking about politics is difficult because politics is one of the ways we express what we really care about—our hopes, our values, our deepest concerns. Political beliefs are about our education, religious commitments, sense of justice, the future of the planet, war and peace, our personal sense of safety and health.
This workbook is meant to help you get ready to engage in a dialogue about your political beliefs. It isn’t always easy to talk about what we care about and why, to share the reason for our beliefs or the values that underlie them. What story could you tell people to help them understand you and your values. What person or place in your life has made the greatest impact on you? This will help you discover those stories and make those connections.
