Unearthing Us Facilitator Guide: 21 Sessions Based on the Poetry of Joe Davis

The 21 sessions in this Facilitator Guide correspond to the 21 poems in Unearthing Us: Poems and Practices for Discovering Our Fullest Selves by Joe Davis. 

  •  Sessions move through stages of planting, growing, and flourishing that connect to the thematic progression of poems in Unearthing Us.
  • Leaders are invited into pre-work activities to prepare their hearts and minds for facilitating each session. 
  • Sessions include creative responses to each poem along with biblical exploration, community connections, and journaling prompts. 
  • Many groups can use these sessions: senior high youth, intergenerational events, Bible study groups, retreat participants, and other gatherings of people who want to explore poetry and faith together. 

 All sessions are written by Rev. Dr. Jia Starr Brown, an educator, activist, and curriculum designer who provides access to education, tools, and community that we all need to live whole and liberated lives.
