As the year comes to a close, it's important to make space to reflect on the last 12 months and create your plan for 2024.

Like many, you probably didn’t achieve all your personal and professional goals this year. And that’s completely understandable. There's been no shortage of change, disruption, and uncertainty lately.

And while there are many things out of your control, YOU do have control over whether you have a solid plan in place for the next 12 months and beyond.

You want to make more of an impact in 2024. You also want to carve out more time for yourself. Yet, this can seem impossible given the volume of things on your plate right now.

You can't wave a magic wand and have all the challenges disappear. BUT you can find grounding in what seems like a groundless world by taking ownership of the things within your power.

This includes having clear personal and professional intentions and goals in place.

That's why I'm offering a FREE 2024 Life Planning Masterclass on Saturday, December 16th at 1:30 PM ET. If you can't join us live, a recording will be available for purchase after the live masterclass. You get the free Life Planning Guide and a notification about the recording when you sign up.

I will walk you through:

Conducting a review of the last 12 months and setting a vision for 2024.

Mapping out intentions and goals in each of the core areas of your life for the next 12 months and beyond.

Confronting inner roadblocks such as fear, doubt, and grief that can get in the way of progress.

More than 6,000 people representing scores of religions and belief systems are expected to convene in Chicago starting August 14 for what organizers bill as the world’s largest gathering of interfaith leaders.

If you belong to a belief system that has weekly services, do you prefer to attend them virtually or in-person?

If you belong to a belief system that has weekly services, do you prefer to attend them virtually or in-person?

About a quarter of U.S. adults regularly watch religious services online or on TV, and most of them are highly satisfied with the experience. About two-in-ten Americans (21%) use apps or websites to help with reading scripture.

“Any religion that professes to be concerned about the souls of men and is not concerned about the slums that cripple the soul, the economic conditions that stagnate the soul, and the city governments that may damn the soul is a dry, dead, do-nothing religion in need of new blood.”

"Throughout the post-World War II era, an overwhelming 98% of U.S. adults said they believed in God. That began to fall in 2011, when 92% of Americans said they believed in God and, in 2013, went down again to 87%."

Belief in God has been one of the strongest, most reliable markers of the persistence of American religiosity through the years. But a new Gallup Poll suggests that may be changing.

"The movie tells the story of a young boy navigating his Jewish identity and what it means to find Jewish belonging. With vibrant, colorful animation, it spins a tale that is both adorable, emotionally resonant and full of Jewish specificity — a scene where matzah is crunched into a bowl to make matzah balls is viscerally familiar for many of us who grew up Ashkenazi Jewish."

In the program of the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival, which opened last week, you will find a movie that every Jewish family needs to watch: a four-minute short named “Blewish.” The film may be short, but it packs an emotional punch (I may or may not have shed a tear while watc...

What is a StoryMap? And why are they so important to consult?

StoryMaps are configurable applications that combine narrative, interactive maps, images, and other media. They shed light on the lived experience of thousands of U.S. communities over space and time, and will help you equip yourself with data and examples to pursue new models for equity.

CLU and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy will study StoryMaps as a geospatial storytelling tool in the second webinar of our 3-part series on undoing structural racism. Through StoryMaps, we can understand past policy decisions that contributed to today’s inequities – like redlining, interstate highway development, zoning, and urban renewal.

See you on October 13th! https://www.claremontlincoln.edu/news/confronting-structural-racism-from-history-to-action-webinar-series/
