In this visit we’ll focus on his book! Robert V. Taylor is a South African native, was a conscientious objector to apartheid in the 1970s, and the first openly gay Episcopal dean in the U.S. Along with his spiritual mentor, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, he has been an advocate for marginalized peoples globally and locally, developing facilities for the homeless, the AIDS/HIV community, veterans, underprivileged children, and the elderly.Taylor is no stranger to heartrending fear. He shares with readers how he moved from fear into a place of enormous love and impact. "The old way of being human accepts the cynicism of the world with a resigned, bystander-victim mentality about life," he says. "The global economy, global conflicts and the seismic shifts of social media and technology result in uncertainty, anxiety and apprehension about the unknown.""But the new way of being human reveals spiritual truths about the Holy in your life to discover how your stories connect to the stories of those you might least expect." Part spiritual guidebook and part remarkable life story, A New Way of Being Human is divided into seven chapters of spiritual pathways with three items of practice at each section's end to guide the reader's journey. The reader will learn to dig into his or her own life story, break through personal difficulties, and "polish the world with kindness." It beckons those of us who are ready to explore a new way to be human, “because our lives are at stake.”
