Where is hope in times like these? Who can show us where hope lives in a world fractured by disease, war, division, and mistrust? To explore these questions, Becky and Emily will draw on the writings of Julian of Norwich and Mystical Hope: Trusting in the Mercy of God by Cynthia Bourgeault, concluding with the shared experience of viewing and discussing the film “Babette’s Feast.”
