LOCAL>> Tim Shriver – The Call to Unite

Chairman of Special Olympics and author in conversation with inspirational author

As the world concludes a a full year under the COVID-19 pandemic, many people and communities around the globe have felt a sense of doom and unrest. In the United States particularly, political and social divisions fueled a sense of societal darkness and sadness.

However, there are signs of hope, particularly among a group of prominent spiritual and religious leaders, poets and thinkers, singers and writers brought together by Tim Shriver, longtime chairman of the Special Olympics.

At the start of 2020, despite the challenging times, Shriver saw an opportunity for those hungry for community to answer a call to heal, a call to hope, a call to unite. He asked monks and nuns, artists and activists, nurses and doctors, ex-presidents and ex-cons to come together to share messages of inspiration, transformation and love.

The result? His new book, The Call to Unite: Voices of Hope and Awakening—featuring stories and insights from Bishop TD Jakes, Elizabeth Gilbert, Van Jones, Amy Grant, Dr. Rheeda Walker, Pastor Rick Warren, Rev. Jacqui Lewis, Jewel, Deepak Chopra and many others—offers readers a book of wisdom to turn to in hard times. It is filled with prayers, poems, spiritual insights and lessons to live by that will stand the test of time.

In this conversation, Shriver and inspirational author Simon Sinek will offer those seeking affirmation, solace and inspiration guidance for finding the light at this challenging time. Please join us for a special program about coming together so we can we be our happiest—and our best.
