SANTA BARBARA Westmont College Professor Jim Taylor will discuss the importance of listening and respect during a lecture scheduled next month.
The free lecture, titled “Character Matters: Civility in Uncivil Times,” will be held at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 13 at the University Club, 1332 Santa Barbara St. Limited seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis, according to a news release.
Mr. Taylor will explain how our public conversation is wounding our nation at the seams and preventing us further from solving our problems.
“What would it take to listen to each other with respect and openness? We need a renewed commitment to crucial, neglected qualities of character,” Mr. Taylor said.
