Description: 

Author Penny Rosenwasser will read from her new book, Hope Into Practice, Jewish Women Choosing Justice Despite Our Fears, on Thursday, Dec. 12, 7pm, at In Other Words Bookstore, 14 NE Killingsworth St. Portland, 503-232-6003. Free.

 
HOPE into PRACTICE responds with a rare blend of healing stories, fascinating history, and a fair-minded perspective on Israel-Palestine—asking us to love ourselves enough to face our fears without acting on them. Working through internalized oppression, we can link personal healing with social justice—enabling us to fight more effectively, as visible self-loving Jews, to change systems that are immoral and unfair. Anchored in Jewish ethical tradition and community, this book is an activist’s call to create a more just and generous world. Includes an action-oriented Reader’s Guide, for groups or individuals!

Nicole Foss: Facing the Future

Date: 
Wed, 10/09/2013 (All day) - Thu, 10/10/2013 (All day)
Description: 

Wednesday, October 9th, 7pm at the First Congregational Church in Corvallis, 4515 SW West Hills Rd

Thursday, October 10th, 6:30 pm at TaborSpace, SE 55th & Belmont, Portland

Big-picture thinker Nicole Foss gives an in-depth analysis of the three big challenges of the coming decade, finance, energy, and environmental degradation, then discusses personal and community-based responses to mitigate the major effects. Permaculture, building community relationships, reducing one's reliance on money, and building resiliency in the big three requirements for life (water, food, and energy) are among the approaches presented. No admission charge, though guests will be allowed to donate toward the speaker's travel costs.

FACING THE FUTURE

We are approaching many limits to growth over the next several decades, and are consequently facing many challenges in our immediate future. Finance, energy, environment, resources and climate will all impact on the single-minded, one-dimensional trajectory human society has been taking in our era of growth imperative. Our current path is unsustainable. It cannot and will not continue, so we must adapt our societies in order to build a new future.
