Change the Story….Change the Future…An Interactive, Conversational Workshop
Join Bill Scarvie to look into the future of our children’s children. A three-fold crisis looms before us. Today’s parents of young children will almost certainly experience the effects of global climate disruption in their lifetime. They will also almost certainly suffer the catastrophic economic consequences of dwindling resources and a possible collapse of the US dollar. Given our grim prospects, is there any hope? The Chinese ideogram for crisis has two components, the characters meaning danger and opportunity. What opportunities exist to shape a positive future for our children and grandchildren? What actions can we take now that will improve the likelihood that their lives will be prosperous, secure and meaningful? What is the role of religious communities in this great work? Inspired by David Korten’s recent book, The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community, this workshop will explore these questions through introspection, intimate conversation and group discussion. Bill Scarvie is a member of the cedars UU Church of Bainbridge Island, WA, and coordinates outreach to the faith community for the Great Turning Initiative of the People Centered Development Forum.
