The Activist’s Worldview: What A New Story of Creation Has to Teach Us about Facing the Crises of Our Times

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many of us activists seek a “new story” that can nourish and support us in the face of all that seems to be going catastrophically awry, a story without which we might otherwise plunge into despair or question whether our activism will ever make any difference. Using passages from his book, The Holy Universe, David Christopher will present highlights of this new, uplifting story—based on science, but told in a lyrical narrative—about our origins and our place in the Universe and the Web of Life. He will lead discussions about how this story can help us challenge and reframe assumptions of “Modern Mind” and can guide us as we engage in the day-to-day tasks of our sometimes difficult work. He will discuss what this evolutionary story can teach us about facing the crises of our times and why these crises might be the best thing to happen to humanity. Presented by David Christopher of New Story Press.
