Last night, or should I say, in the wee hours of the morning, I did as I do when I can’t sleep and I read an entire book. It was a book well worth the immersion because it sparked an idea that I can’t wait to get started on. First, the book and my review:
My experience with this book is very much what it is all about – I’ve connected and reflected on it, spending time to just be with the words and wisdom here. Now, I can’t stop thinking about all that I’m going to DO with it. Because this is what it’s all about, not just sitting with the love, but setting it loose on the world. This is done through the hard work of relationships, being infused with the big love of our God, and then loving big for others and ourselves. There is so much here to encourage, challenge, inspire, and enliven us so that we may Love Big; thus, participate in the healing of the world. Let’s get started.
Now my idea and the reason I’m sharing it here. I want a book club just for this book, but a book club that’s more like a work-it book club. I want to take (at least) a month, along with a dedicated group, and just work through this book with my whole self – interpersonally, intrapersonally, spiritually, physically, emotionally, soulfully, historically, systemically, politically, religiously, the whole shebang. It is not that this is a long book that will take a lot of time. It’s just a book that opens the door for so much that is worth taking time with. Like, relationships. And healing.
So this is your invitation to join me. I am currently gathering the names and contact info of people interested in this work-it book club. After some organizing and determining the best way forward, I will share the details with you and we will take this dive together. I’m projecting this group launch will take place on July 1. Until then, consider, respond, order the book for yourself, comment below, and let me know if you wanna work it, with me.
