See No Stranger
is a book “for a world in transition.” Valarie Kaur, a civil rights activist, lawyer, filmmaker and innovator, offers wisdom for us as we discern who we are called to be amidst the divides, challenges and transitions we experience in our world, personal lives and communities. She invites us to ponder, “How do we love in a time of turmoil?” “How do we labor for the world we want when the labor feels endless?” Join us this Spring season to read See No Stranger, create community, and gather for weekly virtual discussions. 

  • Enter into a personal reflection journey with Valarie Kaur’s book, See No Stranger: A Memoir and Manifesto of Revolutionary Love. Kaur invites us to “imagine new ways of being with each other – and with ourselves – so that together we can begin to build the world we want to see.”
  • Join a virtual reflection circle each week. These virtual community gatherings will include silent meditation, prayer and communal reflection on See No Stranger. You will receive a reading guide that contains weekly reflection prompts for our virtual time together.
