Dear Revolutionaries: A Field Guide For the World Beyond the Church will be released into the wild 2.21.23. But I want to get an early copy to 25 of you!
This is my follow up to Dear Church and so much more than that. This is a no bullshit guide to what faith can happen when things fall apart. I propose there is a life-giving, and life saving, way the faithful can walk alongside communities facing state violence.
In #DearRevs I offer practices to prepare you to create counter systems, built on relationship first models, to start to build concentric circles of mutual aid, center gathering/encounters based on a care first model centered on movement sustainability, and how to grieve when no-one else can.
I try to answer the question: How do the already faithful who see the battle ahead wage peace to protect the most vulnerable? With no thought leader industrial complex hook.
There is a literal chapter with title: There Is No 3 Day Training For This Shit.
I am looking for 25 people who want to wrestle with my work. Abolitinist. Pastors. Skeptics. All selected get to join me and a special guest co-instructor on a 4 week training we are offering this Jan at a 40% discount, and other goodies :)
Expectations for launch team members
Read the book before everyone else and think about what you want to highlight about Dear Revolutionaries. Team Members will receive a copy set version via email, and an advance copy of the release version via snail mail before launch. (No audiobook yet team.)
Be able to articulate your sphere of influence. We all have them and they are so many more than social media. You may be an attendee at a text study with colleagues for a tiny conference, in a tiny Synod. Those are my bread and butter. You may teach at a secondary eduction institution, or just head up the book study in your area. It maybe a knitting circle that is trying to turn up. Maybe a new thing to share with comrades while you organize. Whatever your sphere of influence, could you please articulate that below? *It's ok if it's just a bunch of followers on twitter but thats not my goal, nor what I want this group to be solely made up of. **Authors welcome :)
Meet with me for a "2 Way Q and A Zoom" where I ask you questions about how you experienced my work, and you get to ask me what you want in relation to Dear Revolutionaries.
