I Wish My Dad: The Power of Vulnerable Conversations between Fathers and Sons

June 4 @ 12:45 pm - 1:30 pm

Join a book talk with Michael-Ray Mathews and Romal Tune, about Tune’s new book I Wish My Dad: The Power of Vulnerable Conversation between Fathers and SonsTune co-authored the book with his own son, Jordan, outlining what it means to heal unfinished work in those relationships. In the book, Tune “sat down with seventeen men of diverse ages, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds for “I Wish My Dad” conversations. In the pages of this book, he invites us into the room as the men unpack relationships with their fathers, learn to work through emotional pain, recount moments of tenderness and care, and describe risks they took to heal and connect with their fathers.”

He will be joined in conversation by Michael-Ray Mathews, the Director of Clergy Organizing at Faith in Action. The talk will take place in the East End Temple sanctuary, directly following worship, and be streamed to our Facebook and YouTube channels, as well as our homepage.
