Wild Hope: Stories for Lent from the Vanishing (via Zoom)
February 17 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10.00
We share this beautiful blue-green globe with creatures magnificent, delicate, intricate—and now vanishing at a faster rate than at any other time in Earth’s history. Begin Lent with us as Gayle shares their stories–stories of the suffering of God’s Beauty. Their stories of wonder and loss can thaw our stiff hearts to a greater compassion and wake in us a wild hope that from all this death and ruin, something new could rise. In fact, their stories also bear witness to the promise of Lent: that this Hope is already loose in the world. “What better subject for Lent?” – Fr. Richard Rohr
Wednesday, February 17, 7-8 p.m. CST. You will receive the zoom link on the morning of the event.
$10/person. Registration deadline is Tuesday, February 16 at 4 p.m.
Presenter: Gayle Boss is the author of Wild Hope: Stories for Lent from the Vanishing and All Creation Waits: The Advent Mystery of New Beginnings. In both books, her lifelong love of animals and her immersion in spiritual texts and practices have melded to explore how relationships with animals specifically, and an attentive presence in the natural world generally, restore us to our deepest selves. The mother of two grown sons, she lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with her husband and rescued Welsh Corgi.
