As we face the realities of climate change and related ecological crises, and grapple with political and social instability, many of us feel overwhelmed and wonder how to respond. In these interactive lectures based on his new book, Life After Doom: Wisdom and Courage for a World Falling Apart, and his 2022 book Do I Stay Christian, author, activist and public theologian Brian McLaren will explore the complex relationship between Christian faith and its host civilization, and how robust spiritual practice and a vibrant faith community can help people face possible futures, engage in a constructive and sustaining hope, and live from love rather than fear, denial or anger. Brian will examine four scenarios for the years ahead, anticipate some rough air, and imagine safe landings on the other side of this time of transition.
