Reflective Readers Club

STORIES! Mine, ours, theirs, yours, friends, family, and community; our global future needs eyes that see and ears that hear. Come…read and listen to the river of resilience in which we, like the Chinook Salmon, may flash like silver for the benefit of all!

I am an avid reader. I don’t watch television. My news comes in on NPR and The Week magazine. This leaves me free to pick up a book and read in order to become better informed, inspired and entertained. When a book sets out to encourage some form of change I use a pencil to write my presuppositions on the subject matter on one of the blank pages. I do this so that, if the author succeeds in convincing me to take action, then I know why I changed my mind, or was moved to join a “cause”.

One of the best ways to benefit from a good book is to read it in the company of others, as in Book Clubs. This, then, is the reason why I created the Reflective Readers Club (RRC), so that you, as my reader, might use each Rite of Passage (our word for chapter) to reflect upon your own life at these important and influential periods.

It is my great hope that you would take the time to plunge into this river of resilient discussion. By doing so you will join a movement of thinking people who, by their very words and experience can help to slow the present decline into ruin that is so apparent in the time into which we have been born and for which we have direct responsibility as stewards.

Upstreaming with you,
Graham

    Mr. Kerr

    I was a young teenager when you hit the tv screen. my friends and i would watch you right after school.

    I just watched you on youtube – series on bbc food you and Fanny
    I wonder who many people you inspired to get in the kitchen and just do it.
    Its amazing to me still how many people watched that show .

    thank you it was fun – i can still just cook

    I wish you and your family well

    Dear Graham,

    It was so delightful sharing stories on our plane ride from Salt Lake City to Kalispell. I’m signing up for your Saturday reflective blogs, like I promised, and am so looking forward to reading them. It’s funny how random encounters can change us for the better, impacting our lives in unforeseen ways. It’s a “God thing”, right?

    Peace be with you and your family.

    Julie

    Dear Graham, I’m the “cook” in my family and circle of friends, and someone recently asked me how I learned. There was no hesitation in my answer: ” Graham Kerr. First he taught me how to cook, then he re-taught me how to cook healthy”. So thank you Graham for the years and years of compliments I’ve received. I just found this website and look forward to participating in the book club.

    Randy, It’s not everyone who has followed me round the culinary U turn that I pulled and I couldn’t be more pleased to learn that all those hours of experimentation paid off for you.
    Keep it up…it’s such fun to nourish AND delight!
    Upstreaming! Graham

    Please don’t be upset but I used to watch you as a child I used to try to write down the ingredients list to what you were making and I remember you to this day I always thought they should have a show like yours on the Food Network Star and give the ingredients the day before and then let the audience member try the food with you or whoever just so you know I love you
