In Medias Res
Homer began his epic poems “In medias res” This is the term for starting a writing in the middle of things. Today we find ourselves in the middle of a lot of things, challenging things: a surging global pandemic, civil unrest in response to the murder of George Floyd, and grave financial uncertainties. And we long for a return to “normal” – whatever that is. But being in the middle of things brings with it an unexpected grace – the opportunity to reimagine our life together, to change things we no longer accept, and to rewrite our destiny. Being in the middle of things might be unsettling, but we are all still capable of influencing the outcome, we are still able to work for a more just, compassionate, kind and hopeful future. But how do we do that? And how do we take care of ourselves on the journey? Join us to hear some thoughts about this journey, drawing from many resources, followed by conversation.
