Read “Parable of the Sower” by Octavia Butler. What immediate concerns and circumstances lead Lauren to develop “Earthseed: Book of the Living”? How does the maxim “God is Change” serve as the foundation of “Earthseed”? In what dramatic or tragic happening does this maxim deliver both hope and harsh reality?

The city is immersed in violence; robberies and rapes rampage through the city walls. These circumstances fuel Lauren’s concerns about people’s safety, making her develop “Earthseed: Book of the Living.” When Lauren founds “Earthseed,” all she wants is to get away from cruelty and murders, among which she has grown up. She converts people to her faith by being frank that changes are a necessary part of life, so her community is based on experience rather than beliefs.

The maxim “God is Change” delivers hope as new practices are based on compassion and sympathy. However, at the same time, it portrays the harsh reality of changes the community has recently faced: the loss of relatives and friends, shooting people, and running away from homes.
