"Book Discussion: The Gifts of Imperfection, by Brene Brown" with Deacon Deborah, Mondays from 7:00pm to 8:00pm on Zoom, (June 6-July 11) Join Deacon Deborah by zoom for a discussion of this life-changing book. "This book is an invitation to join a wholehearted revolution. A small, quiet grassroots movement that starts with each of saying, ‘My story matters because I matter.’ A movement where we can take to the streets with our messy, heartbreaking, grace-filled, and joyful lives. A movement fueled by freedom that comes when we stop pretending everything is OK when it isn’t. A call that rises up from our bellies when we find the courage to celebrate those intensely joyful moments even though we’ve convinced ourselves that savoring happiness is inviting disaster. Revolution might sound a little dramatic, but in this world, choosing authenticity and worthiness is an absolute act of resistance.” -BreneBrown.com. REGISTER NOW.
