"Hope Is A Muscle"
Mondays: April 23 and 30; May 7 and 14 7:30-8:30 pm in Chapel Lounge

Hope. It is a foundational idea in the Christian spiritual tradition. But what is hope. What Christianity and other spiritual traditions have long understood, and what more recently, psychology and neuroscience have come to grasp, is that hope is far more than just a feeling we either have or don’t. Instead, hope is a spiritual and emotional skill - a habit we can take steps to acquire and strengthen. As the title of a best-selling book a few years ago put it, “Hope Is A Muscle”. During this four-week unit, we will explore, through spiritual texts, exercises and discussion, the meaning and practice of hope as a spiritual and emotional skill, habit...muscle.
