“Lifting Up the Human Voice”: The Beauty of Human Presence, and The Need for Human Wisdom in a Digital Age
A Friday Evening with Wayne Muller
Metrics, data, and technology have sped up the pace of the world. Seduced by promises of freedom and ease, each new application or program claims to insure we will more easily meet our increasingly impossible demands.
When do we stop? When do we rest? How do we find permission to stop? We cannot continue to move faster, do more, and expect to do anything beautifully, honestly, or well. Perhaps, when two or more are gathered, something emerges that will bring us that elusive rest Jesus so confidently offered us.
Wayne Muller is a minister, community advocate, and consultant, the author of several books including Sabbath: Finding Rest, Renewal and Delight in our Busy Lives; Legacy of the Heart: The Spiritual Advantages of a Painful Childhood; and—most recently—A Life of Being, Having and Doing Enough. A graduate of Harvard Divinity School, Wayne has spent the last 25 years working with people suffering abuse, alcoholism, poverty, illness and loss.
