From the Healing the Heart of Democracy Discussion Guide // What experiences of connection or community have you had—whether or not they involved singing—that have helped give you hope?
This video is a part of the Healing the Heart of Democracy Discussion Guide and can be found with more videos and resources in our “Healing the Heart of Democracy Hub.” You can explore the hub, download the guide, and find all of the videos along with additional resources here.
In this video, Carrie tells Parker: “To sing together is a powerful community-building sort of thing. It also does each individual heart good. You can’t help but feel more connected with someone you’re singing with. It seems like an old fashioned idea, but it still works.”
This video could be a good opener for your first meeting. You might say to the group: “Many people today feel isolated and hopeless, which fuels cynicism and withdrawal when it comes to politics. We are gathered in part to create a community of conversation that supports hope. What experiences of connection or community have you had—whether or not they involved singing—that have helped give you hope?”
We offer an abundance of resources to help you learn more about our approach and explore the ways in which our work has meaningfully impacted people’s lives.
