John Kane will once more join our Dialogue at 11:00 to discuss themes from his book, Building the Human City, this time considering the theme "Imagination and Faith". This Dialogue is part of an ongoing series of discussions that help us explore important themes for faith practice with insights from the work of the Catholic scholar, William F. Lynch, whose work is featured in John's book.
John Dear, longtime activist and author of multiple books, will discuss and sign "They Will Inherit the Earth: Peace and Nonviolence in a Time of Climate Change." Drawing on personal stories of his life in the desert of New Mexico, his time as a chaplain at Yosemite, his friendship with indigenous and environmental leaders, his experience at the Standing Rock protests, as well as his work with the Vatican on a new stance on nonviolence, John Dear invites us to return to nonviolence as a way of life and a living solidarity with Mother Earth and her creatures. Tattered cover LoDo is located at 1628 16th St. 80202. John Dear's book is currently available at Tattered Covers' Colfax and Aspen Grove locations.
