We Will Be Changed: Gifts of the ‘Rona for Parents and Caregivers
Fri 2:00pm - 2:50pm
Venue: Convo 03
Jacob wrestled all night long with an angel and at last wrung forth a blessing. What blessings will we wring for our families from our long wrestling this past year? What do we want to hold on to, and what are we ready to release forever? How can we resist the dominant culture that is already urging us to get back to high-paced consuming and producing, and cling to our own newfound sabbath and purpose? How can we help our children find their own resilience and use it to work for a more just post-pandemic world? Join this moderated conversation with two friends, a pastor and a psychologist, together the co-authors of Bless This Mess: A Modern Day Guide to Faith and Parenting in a Chaotic Age. The conversation will close with a time of ritual commitment and blessing for all that lies ahead.
