Deep in the heart of autumn, come share a great meal, and connect with old and new friends. This season of abundance holds the celebration of Thanksgiving, and for many of us, it has memories of laughter, family, and warmth. But for many others whose families have been on this land for millennia, it is a painful reminder of raw and unhealed wounds.
So at this gathering, we’ll bring our happiness and gratitude, but we’ll also open to that much more difficult truth — the reality of oppression and injustice still experienced daily by descendants of the First People in this land.
This human capacity to hold both joy and sorrow, gratitude and responsibility, represent the heart of Living Earth. Our humanity deepens as we soften our boundaries and can sustain the presence of both, of contradiction and of truth.
We’ll share wonderful food and gratitude and be enriched by this opportunity to be together. We’ll have time to catch up over supper, and to hear each other’s hearts. And we’ll also consider the potential that Living Earth holds to become an even more lively, creative place of community.
Whether you are brand new to Living Earth or have been in this circle for a decade, join us on November 19 with an open heart. The food at our potlucks is always great, folks are friendly, and the conversation is lively, so bring a friend and join us.
What to bring:
- A veg/vegan dish to share
- Friends and relatives
- A grateful belly and a humble heart!
- As the season deepens toward winter ahead, connecting over food and conversation brings us into balance with ease of heart, fresh perspectives, and a renewed sense of belonging.
