"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. 

I'll share some stories of my upbringing at Jonah House, a radical, catholic peace community in Baltimore founded by my parents Phil Berrigan and Liz McAlister and some insights I'm carrying from my uncle Dan Berrigan and try to reflect on our current moment. 

Frida Berrigan is a columnist author who lives in New London, Connecticut with her husband Patrick and their three children.
