“Prophets of Hope in Calamitous Times: Julian of Norwich and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin”
With Joshua Canzona, PhD
March 1, 2023
Online at 7pm EST
Temptation to despair is strong in the present moment. War, political upheaval, economic uncertainty, and a global pandemic focus attention on surviving the day rather than building the future. Amidst such challenges, we can learn from those who persevered before us. We can turn toward those who sustained a sense of prophetic hope during calamitous times. Such is the case with Julian of Norwich (1343 – c.1416) and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881 – 1955), and this presentation will provide opportunities to learn more about their complementary mysticism and how it speaks directly to our current needs.
