October 15 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm| Free
Diana Butler Bass reflects on her last book, Grounded, and her forthcoming one, Grateful (April 2018) in light of contentious and chaotic politics of the last two years. Where do we find our footing? What can foster a renewed political vision for our communities? Leaning on a theology of the world and an awareness of abundance, she invites friends and readers to a place of encouragement, hope, and empowerment.
