Hollis (lecture): What Matters Most: Living a More Considered Life
What Matters Most: Living a More Considered Life
Lecture: Friday, March 5, 2010, 7 to 9 p.m.
Trinity Parish Church, 609 Eighth Avenue, Seattle
$20 members, $30 nonmembers
Apart from friends, family, and good work, what matters most in our lives? What values lead us to a freer, larger life, a more considered course? Together we will examine the crippling role fear management systems play in our choices, why we are called to chose ambiguity over familiarity, why the world is driven by verbs not nouns, how life is most meaningful in the face of mortality, and how genuine spirituality is a journey not an arrival. A more considered life asks more of us than may be comfortable, but we are rewarded with a more interesting story.
