Recent SURJ call transcript - 'Calling out/Calling in' with Adrienne Maree Brown
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
This is the CC Transcript and the recording from a SURJ call with Adrienne Maree Brown that happened in mid-July 'Calling White People In'. Adrienne Maree Brown is the one who coined the phrase: 'change at the speed of trust'. Her book 'Emergent Strategy' is an excellent guide to movement work that is inclusive, has integrity, and is effective.
I just downloaded and read through the 17 page transcript, and it was annoying and nonsensical in some places, being a CC transcript, but overall I found the message to be very clear when the leaders were articulating the most important things. I'm sharing it because there is so much here that is helpful. It's about holding each other in curiosity, humility, and expanding our vision about what we're trying to do.
Below are links to the hour long video and to the transcript and I'm attaching the transcript as a .pdf to make it easy. For those of you who have the band-width for this, I recommend it!
Where is God in this picture? God is all over the place. God is up there, down here, inside my skin and out. God is the web, the energy, the space, the light ...revealed in that singular, vast net of relationship that animates everything that is. . . . Barbara Brown Taylor
Whenever I groan within myself and think how hard it is to keep writing about love in these times of tension and strife which may at any moment become for us all a time of terror, I think to myself “What else is the world interested in?” What else do we all want, each one of us, except to love and be loved, in our families, in our work, in all our relationships. God is Love. —Dorothy Day
