SEEKING PASSIONATE, COMPETENT EVOLUTIONARIES
TO HELP MAKE THANK GOD FOR EVOLUTION!
A REAL BREAKTHROUGH
Michael Dowd's new book Thank God for Evolution! How the Marriage of Science and Religion will Transform Your Life and Our World will be released in October 2007. A new website has been set up for activities related to it. We expect a remendous response (see TGFE News). Within the next four months we want to be prepared.
1. To make Thank God for Evolution! a runaway best-seller and
2. To help excited readers come together
- to realize, deepen, and celebrate their sacred relationship with evolution and the larger family of life of which we are all part and
- to consciously evolve themselves, their communities, and society.
In other words, we want to reach out to people in many ways and, when someone gets turned on by this new way of looking at the world -- or has an epiphany or life changing experience -- we want to help them take action that furthers conscious evolution. Our ultimate aim is to enable society to more consciously evolve through challenges and crises, into greater vibrancy, compassion, awareness and wholeness.
The release of Thank God for Evolution! gives us an unprecedented evolutionary opportunity to make this dream real.
But who is the "we" that will do these preparations? We in the small circle of colleagues immediately around Michael and Connie do not have the skill, insight, and time to accomplish this Great Work by ourselves. So the "we" that will do this will include many of you who are reading this newsletter. You know who you are.
Here are some things you can participate in, if you feel called or excited to do so. After each one is the name of a person who will be convening an initial telephone conference call (and possibly ongoing monthly or seasonal calls) with those who have passion and are committed to working on the following areas -- including people with related gifts, skills, passions, and visions to share. If you are interested, please send an email to the person listed, with the topic area written in the subject line.
