In light of the challenges of our times, it is worthwhile to look back to another extremely challenging time and hear the voices of those who found meaning in their suffering. We will be looking at the lives and words of women like Edith Stein, Anne Frank, Etty Hillesum, and Corrie Ten Boom … possibly others … Listening to what they wrote and how they lived their lives during a terrible time.
Saturday, January 23, 2021, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. CST. The zoom link will be sent via email on Friday, January 22.
$20/person. Registration deadline is January 21 at 4 p.m.
