“True belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are.” Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives—experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.

Join Pastor Lawrence Lee for a Lectionary Study based on your reactions and questions. No preparation needed. 

In this study participants will read and discuss the lectionary readings for a month in advance (e.g. on January 11 we will be looking at the readings for February 14) with the focus being on the uncomfortable or unknown edges of the readings to help guide the preaching on these passages. Clergy present in the discussion will focus on listening rather than answering questions or steering the conversation, but will help facilitate understanding historical and cultural context if needed. Each passage will be taken separately, read, discussed, and the clergy present will respond reflectively, asking clarifying questions of the participants, using this time to start guiding their sermon preparation.
