Newsletter Winter 2022

By Kathleen Reeves | November 1, 2022

Help, Thanks, Wow! According to Anne Lamott all prayers usually fall into one of those three categories. As a process thinker and a hospice chaplain, I weave them together when I pray with my patients. That’s what I tried to do in this newsletter, because life is full of “Help, Thanks, Wows”. This woven prayer is the everyday prayer at the Cobb Institute. The work of the Institute requires the help of friends like you, and we are grateful for the help we receive. Thank you! When we look at this community of friends and all we have accomplished, we say Wow! We hope you enjoy this prayer-filled newsletter.

Newsletter Fall 2022

By Kathleen Reeves | August 2, 2022

Gardening is a process in praxis. It is an act of rebellion. It is a creative act done in partnership with the earth, so it provides an excellent concrete example of one of the technical terms used by process thinkers: concrescence. Concresence means “growing together.” At the Cobb Institute we are imagining the possibilities of urban agriculture, restorative farming, and sustainable local sources of food. Check out our fall newsletter to see what’s been growing together at the Institute.
