"Hope's Alive" with Frida Berrigan

When: Sunday, September 24, 2017, 11:00 am to 2:00 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street, 2nd floor • Boston

Where is our hope? How do we find it, feed it, share it? I'm finding hope in sanctuaries of silence and the eyes of friends. I'm feeding hope in the streets crowded with people shouting "Black Lives Matter," "No Justice, No Peace" and "Love Trumps Hate." I'm sharing hope by not shirking away from hard truths and hard work. I'm rescued from hopelessness by my children's laughter and their relentless appetite for life despite its contradictions, challenges and conflict.
