It’s more than an interesting read, or a(nother) call to action, it’s a spiritual and intelligent look at changing ourselves to be strong enough to not only face climate disaster, but contribute to the social and ecological change urgently needed.
At the heart of this book is an antidote to despair: the idea that Active Hope is something we do rather than have.
"When our responses are guided by the intention to act for the healing of our world, the mess we’re in not only becomes easier to face, our lives also become more meaningful and satisfying." Joanna Macy is quite the force.
This November, the St. Andrew’s Book Club re-activates with a series of encouraging reads. We’ll start with Active Hope, a book study co-led by Susan Chisholm and Joanna Bull of the Ecology Action Centre.
Looking forward reading, talking, and hoping with you!
