Tom’s brother George will be with us in worship and afterward for a structured circle conversation on Sunday, April 28, 2019. George has been teaching meditation and mindfulness from a Buddhist perspective for over thirty years, although he began his contemplative journey by studying the Christian mystics. During worship Tom and George will share their different (or not so different) perspectives on the lectionary gospel text for the Sunday after Easter which is rich with metaphor and allegory relating to the contemplative spiritual life.
Here is a description of the circle conversation:
A Golden Civilization Conversation with George Kinder
Bring your wildest ideas and most personal values to a conversation about the future. You’re invited to a conversation and visioning exercise facilitated by George Kinder, internationally-recognized thought leader and father of the financial Life Planning movement. Imagine a thousand years into the future there is a Golden Civilization. What does it look like? Feel like? How do people communicate and govern themselves? What does the economy look like? And what can we each do to move towards it right now? Inspired by his latest book, A Golden Civilization and the Map of Mindfulness, these structured conversations are held with groups globally and represent the beginning of a grassroots movement. The conversations are designed to move us through much of the turmoil we find ourselves in by creating a positive vision of civilization’s future and action steps to accomplish it in short order.
