SuperHuman: Being the Kind of Person the World Needs

Please Stand By While you are Redirected!

With John Pavlovitz

John PavlovitzWhen it comes to having hope for the world, many of us tend to look outside of ourselves. Our hero may be a writer, a politician, a preacher, a musician, or a celebrity who illuminates the kind of promise we are seeking. The truth is, however, that we are the heroes we’ve been waiting for. It isn’t the sky that holds our hope for the planet, it’s the person we see in the mirror each day.

In this lively, authentic, interactive class, we are going to dig in to the best way to be human by answering the fundamental question “What kind of person does the world need?" We’ll identify ways of cultivating key traits--ordinary superpowers--that will improve our lives and reinforce our humanity and our unique gifts and weapons in the battle to become heroic. We’ll consider the weaknesses--our personal kryptonite--that leave us all vulnerable and prepare for the adversaries that will surely appear along the way as we actively cultivate hope. We’ll look back on our personal stories and remember how they have been punctuated with kindness and wonder—and we’ll see how those stories have specifically prepared us and can propel us forward. And in the same way that superheroes don’t just work alone but in teams of other extraordinary people, we’ll learn to leverage the exponential power of community by connecting with like-hearted people, with the ultimate goal of creating a global movement of radical goodness.

John Pavlovitz is a a writer, pastor, and activist from Wake Forest, NC. In the past four years his blog, Stuff That Needs to Be Said, has reached a diverse, worldwide audience.

In 2017 he released his first book, A Bigger Table. His new book, Hope and Other Superpowers, will be published in November 2019.
