The next best thing to reading a book that impacts your life is getting a chance to talk with the author about the notes you made in the margins, or in your mind and heart!
You are invited to join a series of three book discussions with Parker J. Palmer. Each conversation will focus on one of Parker's most widely read books. He will share about writing the book and what he's learned from readers about it over the years. Then he'll invite your questions and comments about how the issues in the books have played out in your life.
These conversations are free and open to anyone who would like to attend. Sign up for one, two, or all three--and help us share the word.
If you are able, we ask that you consider a donation of any amount to support the Center for Courage & Renewal, a non-profit founded by Parker. For nearly 25 years, we have been supporting people around the world in nurturing personal and professional integrity and the courage to act on it--or, as Parker likes to say, in "rejoining soul and role."
Haven't read the books, but curious to learn more? You're invited, too. No pre-reading is required--and there will be no pop quiz!
Recordings and transcripts will be made available to registered participants
Notes in the Margins: Three-Part Series with Parker J. Palmer
Notes in the Margins #1
Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation
Let Your Life Speak is about the search for purpose and meaning--in darkness and in light--that animates us at every stage of life.
Is the life you're living the same as the life that wants to live in you?
Notes in the Margins #2
A Hidden Wholeness: The Journey Toward An Undivided Life
A Hidden Wholeness considers how challenging but rewarding it can be to show up as "true self" in our personal, vocational, and public lives--and the creativity that flows when we have the courage to risk doing it.
Notes in the Margins #3
On the Brink of Everything: Grace Gravity & Getting Old
On the Brink of Everything explores living our lives fully and well to the very end, reaching in for wisdom, reaching out to serve. Old is just another word for nothing left to lose, a time to take bigger risks for the common good.
