Have you ever wondered why it is you can talk to someone until you're "blue in the face" and walk away knowing you haven't been heard? Has anyone ever told you, "You never listen to me or if you do, you don't hear me!"? Do your disagreements with others end up in cold silence? Heated exchanges? Hurt feelings and disconnection?

Special Performance of "The Story of Ebenezer Scrooge", Sun 12/17 at 1pm
