Preparation #1: Spend a bit of time contemplating these 6 maxims:

  1. Work hard to grasp the immensity of the change;
  2. Cultivate radical hope;
  3. Have a line in the sand;
  4. Appreciate the astonishing opportunity of life at this time;
  5. Train your body and mind;
  6. And act for the future generations of all species.

If this intrigues you, read the full articleHERE.Joanna is in LOVE with this article (and so am I!). It is 17 pages long, but is worth the effort! FindLarry Churchill&David Schenck bio’sHERE.

Preparation #2:

The theologianFrederick Buechnerwrote to find “the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”The preparation question I invite you to contemplate is, “By what means can we discover the place where these two worlds meet: ourjoyand the world’sache?”
