Hope is not optional in a time of climate change: hope is what keeps us working toward a future of mutual flourishing, even when the path ahead is unclear. We will seed our discussion of hope with a reading of excerpts from our book, 'Letters from the Ecotone: Ecology, Theology, and Climate Change'. We will then explore our own relationships with hope. Where do we find hope? What comes between us and our hope? What spiritual practices can help us to nurture and nourish hope?
