New Story Group Meeting
Welcome to the New Story meetings on Zoom on the fourth Mondays of the month. Come at 6:30pm for fellowship and check-ins; Program starts at 7:00pm and ends at 9:00pm. First timers are always welcome!
Join us at 6:30pm for check-ins and fellowship; program starts at 7:00pm. Come watch, reflect on and discuss the film “The Third Harmony: Nonviolence and the New Story of Human Nature”. The film is based on the book with the same name by Michael Nagler, peace activist and founder of the Metta Center.
“So many of the problems that beset us–war, poverty, isolation, and the climate crisis–have their roots in an old story about the universe: we are purposeless matter in a random void, and scarcity, competition, and violence are inevitable. Citing the convergence of modern science and the essence of the world’s wisdom traditions, Michael Nagler argues for a new story: the universe is conscious and purposeful, humans are spiritual beings, and cooperation and collaboration are our natural way of interacting. This “new story” has had other champions, but Nagler is the first to realize that a piece is missing. For the new story to take hold, we have to embrace nonviolence, not only as a social change tactic but as a way of life.” (Amazon)
