Happening around the Kootenays:

Delve deeply into anti-racism work with a 40-day time of learning, reflection, and advocacy!

Each day from Tuesday, October 12 to Friday, November 26 (with the exception of Sundays) there will be a new reflection on anti-racism, as well as activities suitable for adults and children. These activities can be done alone, as a family, or in groups.

During the 40 Days, each day’s content will be available in a format that you can review, download, or print and distribute!  A more comprehensive description of these events are available on The United Church of Canada website.

Two Engaging Opportunities with Brent in Invermere
The first is a six-week study on the book, The Heart of Christianity, by Marcus Borg.
This is an excellent book to understand a more progressive way of understanding the Bible, religion, and spirituality. It will run from October 20th to November 24th. These are Wednesdays, and you can either join in at 1:00 pm in the afternoon or 7:00 pm (Mountain Time) in the evening. Let me know if you would like a book. I have ordered a number of them. 
The second is what I’d like to call “Fridays with Eckhart.” We’ll listen to talks by Eckhart Tolle and have some time for discussion. These will begin on Friday, October 15th at 10:00 am. (Mountain Time) They will go until noon. Please let me know if you would like to receive the link for these sessions.
