Spiritual Deepening Offering: See No Stranger Book Discussion

Challenging Racism

This book group will explore the concept of revolutionary love through a discussion of the book See No Stranger: A Memoir and Manifesto of Revolutionary Love by Valarie Kaur.

How do we love in a time of rage? How do we fix a broken world while not breaking ourselves? Valarie Kaur—renowned Sikh activist, filmmaker, and civil rights lawyer—describes revolutionary love as the call of our time, a radical, joyful practice that extends in three directions: to others, to our opponents, and to ourselves. It enjoins us to see no stranger but instead look at others and say: You are part of me I do not yet know. Starting from that place of wonder, the world begins to change: It is a practice that can transform a relationship, a community, a culture, even a nation.
