“More Together Than Alone: The Power and Spirit of Community”
February 21, 2019 | 7 p.m. | 2452 Knauss Hall, WMU
Bill Burian Community Lecture Series, WMU College of Health and Human Services
In this talk, Nepo will explore the heartwork required to inhabit our lives by engaging our ongoing relationships to self, other, work, community and Source. The integrity of our heartwork depends on integrating who we are with what we do. Regardless of the service we’re called to, the central questions have always been: How will we inhabit our time on Earth? How can we live fully alone and together? How will we know and be known? How do we hold each other as we tumble along in the story of our lives? How will we care for each other in the face of crisis?
