Session 4A - Development Workshop: How Major Donors Think: A Conversation

Session 4B - The Cultural Crack-Up: Can We Recover?

Session 4C - Communications Workshop: The Power of Storytelling to Shape Hearts and Minds
"Those who tell the stories rule society," Plato once said.  He was right.  That's because human beings were born to process information - and understand life - through stories.  This discussion will center around what makes a good story, why conservatives have failed to deploy this weapon, and why we must.

Session 4D -
Building Communities that Thrive
As government steps in with its heavy hand and preferred solutions, too often programs meant to build opportunity create detachment and dependency.  Faith-based leaders and the marketplace can help restore dignity and build caring communities that thrive.
