How Do We Move Forward?

A Community Questions Event

Monday February 4th 6 pm- 7:30 pm in the Brooks room at the downtown library. 601 NW Wall St.

This event is sponsored by the library! It’s free for you! We’ll be meeting the first Monday of the month through June. We are so excited because…

We live in times of great change. Yes?

How can we move forward with greater understanding of our differences, and our sameness?

We believe timely, open ended questions create a space for us to do just that.

Questions like:

How could you hold your own truth and listen openly to someone who has a different truth?

How do you hold both “me and mine” and “we and ours” when a personal decision affects the wellbeing of others?

What is needed for our most vulnerable populations?

During these 1.5 hour events you will explore questions through thought provoking prompts, quotes, and images. You will connect with others through writing, listening, and sharing. The space created will allow for everyone's diverse perspectives to be heard with hospitality and equity.

Praise for Stoke Your Woke:

I used two of Carol’s questions with my mother and brother recently—wow! The questions opened up a window into them and I saw and heard some things I never knew about them. The questions helped me connect in a new, depthful way to the people I care about, but can’t always relate to. I am so grateful for that.

We live in times that overwhelm us with a tsunami of suffering; stories about environmental devastation, violence, poverty, racial and political unrest fill our computer screens daily, 24/7. Many wonder, ‘What is my response and duty in the face of this cacophony of need?’ If this is you, be encouraged! This journal offers a creative, self-guided study designed to help you ask questions regarding your gifts, interests, passions, and your deepest desires to make a contribution, and where you can begin. Intended to engage you in an inner journey of inquiry through writing, you can also use it with a group, a partner or friend. By the end of this process, you may have the answer to where to place your time and talents in this crossroads of history, or least a sense of peace that you had the courage to ask the questions!

We all are concerned about where are world is headed...every one of us. But concern is unproductive. Its neighbor “worry” stresses our adrenals and leads to anything but peace on earth! This beautiful and provocative book by Carol Delmonico and Casey Davis provides thought seeds to plant in conversation with people you already care about or with people you don’t yet know. As we take the time to ponder these rich questions and quotes, we will surely be led to our own right actions to steer our world in a more positive direction. As a minister, I can readily imagine using this book as the kindling for a rich and fiery group.
— Rev. Jane Hiatt, Sr. Minister, Unity Community of Central Oregon
I am delighted to offer my gratitude to Casey and Carol for this creative, illuminating and accessible workbook. The questions invite deep inner listening and, in a gentle yet penetrating way, encourage the reader to bring our personal and societal concerns and actions into alignment. As someone who actively explores most of these issues in my life, I found new insights and discoveries. I highly recommend ‘taking the plunge’ into this engaging inquiry. May we all awaken to our deepest values and find ways of enacting them in our lives!
