Jone Johnson Lewis: When Hope is Hard to Find

July 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm

Free and open to the public, in-person and online!

There are some times in our lives when we begin to lose hope.   We lose something we had, or thought we had, and we begin to lose our faith that it will come back again.  Jone Lewis will explore some of the ways in which we can look at hope – not wishful thinking, or a full confidence in the future, but simple hope: “As a humanist, I don’t find a guarantee of a future life meaningful. I want some joy and freedom and love in this life.”
