Being True to Yourself in the Political Arena

Presentation by Jim Wayne


Many Americans are disturbed and discouraged by the discord in our current American politics. This presentation will review the accepted norms in political settings from local governments to state and national governments. Bringing forth the testimonies of Gandhi, Thomas Merton and Reinhold Niebuhr to enlighten our conversation, it will offer practical suggestions on how to be involved in policy making, and guidance on how to navigate the rough waters of politics while keeping centered.


SPEAKER: JIM WAYNE has served as member of the Kentucky House of Representatives since 1990. He has been a champion of tax reform, affordable housing and protection of workers and the vulnerable. A practicing psychotherapist, he holds a MSW degree from Smith College School for Social Work in Northampton, Massachusetts, as well as a MA in theology from Maryknoll School of Theology in New York.
