Adult RE: Book Club – Centering Rm

April 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until April 16, 2019

Adult R.E. presents: Spring Book Club!

Our spring offering for Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8 p.m. will be two three-week book discussions. Although not required, registration helps us plan. Please sign up on the church website, or contact Ellen Thomas or Lisa Fritsche for more information. It is especially important to know if childcare is needed.

On April 2, 9 and 16, Rev. Molly will facilitate discussion of Emergent Strategy by Adrienne Maree Brown.

Inspired by Octavia Butler’s explorations of our human relationship to change, Emergent Strategy is radical self-help, society-help, and planet-help designed to shape the futures we want to live. Change is constant. The world is a stream of ever-mutating, emergent patterns. Rather than steel ourselves against such change, this book invites us to feel, map, assess and learn from the patterns to better understand and influence them as they happen. This is a resolutely materialist “spirituality” based equally on science and science fiction, a visionary incantation to transform that which ultimately transforms us.
