Wild Hope: Book Discussion Group for the Season of Creation

Wednesdays, September 8 – October 6, 6 p.m. central, online

Calling environmentalists, animal lovers, Christians and people of all faith/spiritual traditions to join a weekly book discussion group using the book Wild Hope: Stories for Lent from the Vanishing.  Christians are saying – Lent isn’t until 2022, why are you reading this now? Non-Christians are wondering why would they be invited to read a book related to a season in the Christian calendar?  Wild Hope contains 25 beautifully-written, intimate portraits of the lives of endangered animals, the hazards they face and how people are responding to save them.  The book is inspiring and awakens deep empathy.  The stories do not contain any religious/spiritual material, yet they are incredibly moving. Readers of all backgrounds will find this little book powerful.  Join a small group to read this book from September 1 – Oct. 4 (the Season of Creation in the Christian calendar) & meet to discuss it – that’s five 900-word stories/week.

Please register for this weekly book discussion group on www.eventbrite.com at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wild-hope-book-discussion-group-for-the-season-of-creation-tickets-163741865327.
