This is a FREE event

Doors open at 6:30pm, Program begins at 7:00pm.

 

Today's families face many competing demands and challenges. How can we create a home that honors the best of where we come from and embraces the emerging challenges and opportunities of life in the 21st century? It’s easy to get stuck reacting to the unhelpful patterns. Or it’s tempting to mirror the default values of safety, security, self-focus and material success that have characterized our culture. We know that simplistic, rule-based and one-size fits all approaches won’t work. Now more than ever, we need a vision for family that is creative, intentional, soulful and globally aware.

Families come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you have children, hope to have children, parent solo or with a partner, your household can be a place of BELONGING, where each person feels safe, cared for and loved AND a place of BECOMING, where you help one another develop who you are for the good of the world.

Join authors Mark and Lisa Scandrette for this practical session based on their latest book, Belonging and Becoming: Creating A Thriving Family Culture. Together we will explore tools and practices that can help your family thrive.

They lead an annual series of retreats, workshops, and projects designed to help participants apply spiritual wisdom to everyday life. They live in the Mission District of San Francisco and have three young adult children. Mark is the author of Practicing the Way of Jesus and together they coauthored Free: Spending Your Time and Money on What Matters Most.
