The technology available to us in our generation gives each of us an unparalleled opportunity to reach the world with our ideas and contribution. No previous generation in history has had this available to them.
We’ve been struck over recent days how remarkable this is, and how easy to take for granted.
Ideas that destroy, divide, and diminish our humanity, dignity and shared responsibility can spread as fast as those that can serve life. And so we’re starting to see that we have a responsibility, where we can, to bring our courage, generosity and gifts in service of that which could dignify, heal, and connect us. And that there’s no time to lose.
In this spirit we began today a freely available online conversation project hosted by thirdspace called ‘Turning Towards Life‘.
Every Sunday morning at 9am (UK) we’ll be speaking live online for about 30 minutes about a topic to do with facing life with courage, wisdom and compassion. Or, said another way, to do with how we might each come out of hiding and take up our places in the world.
We’ll start each conversation with a source that’s inspired, moved or challenged us – a poem, article, reading, or book – and we’ll post the source on a Friday so it’s widely available before our conversation.
The best way to join us is in our new facebook group. You’ll be able to see us live there, watch previous videos, and join the conversation.
To get you started, here’s a short introduction to the project. Please join us, and join in. We’d love to have you with us.
