This program is part of a series in which we look to our spiritual heritage for examples of people who have survived tough times. We are currently particularly challenged by the pandemic and systemic racism – and all their attendant difficulties. Others before us have leaned into the Gospels and let God’s mercy flow through them as they took on the challenges of their day: Catherine McAuley, Katherine Drexel, Howard Thurman, Berta Caçeres and our own families. Let their stories inspire you now. Please join us for one or more of these evenings!
“They can cut all the flowers, but they can’t stop the Spring from coming.” (Pablo Neruda)
The story of our faith is full of courageous women who enacted the revolution of the tenderness Jesus invites. Today we will focus on Berta Caçeres, who was martyred for defending the indigenous people of Honduras from those who destroyed their lives and their land.
Cost: $25. Scholarships available, because all are welcome at Cranaleith. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
