A Celebration of Hope

This Lenten retreat day will be based on my new book, Hanging onto Hope: Reflections and prayers for Finding Good in an Imperfect World. Using scripture, music, stories, short videos, and humor, I will lead our exploration of the vital importance of hope for our life of faith and love.
