Actually, this special event is technically two special events. The first is a speaking event on Friday, November 15, 2019 from 7pm - 9pm. The cost is $25.00 per ticket. Pavlovitz will be presenting his speech: When the World is Upside-Down (or Blessed are the Damn-Givers). Here is a brief preview of the topic:
These are disorienting days. The disconnection and enmity have taken a toll on all of us; on our families, our friendships, our local communities, our faith communities. What do we do to right-side things? How can we be agents of compassion in days when cruelty seems to be trending? Join Author and Pastor John Pavlovitz for an honest conversation about the what to do when everything feels upside down.
The second event is a workshop the following day, Saturday November 16, from 10am - 1pm. The cost is $40.00 per ticket. The topic is: Cultivating Hope in Difficult Days (or Avoiding Compassion Fatigue). Here is a preview of the workshop:

To be compassionate is to bleed; to feel deeply for the damage around you and to be moved to respond to it. This is a beautiful and invaluable instinct, but it is costly too. There is a toll the trauma of the world takes on us when we seek to step into that dangerous space and to work for healing and justice. In days when so much need is at our doorsteps and on our news feeds, how do we attend to it all without becoming overwhelmed and consumed by it? How can be cultivate hope when it is hard to come by? Join Pastor/Author John Pavlovitz for a time of authentic conversation on how to be safely burdened with the pain of this world, and what to do when you've exhausted your resources.

Tickets are limited, so act now before they sell out!
