A Conversation on Cultivating Hope 

Come join facilitator, Lisa Harrell, area spiritual directors, pastors and interested others in a conversation about cultivating true spiritual hope in ourselves and those with whom we sit.  Together, we will discuss what hope is and isn’t, what stymies it, and how it grows. The morning will be less about teaching and more about dialog on the ways of God in growing and sustaining hope in God’s people – through promise, suffering, discouragement, despair, sustenance, remembering, gratitude, and desire.  We will use concepts from Josef Pieper's book On Hope as a starting place.  Participants are encouraged to bring other helpful books or resources to reference and/or recommend.

Lisa Harrell holds both a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology and a Certificate in Spiritual Direction from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology in Seattle, WA. Shealso earned a Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership from Bethel University in St. Paul, MN.   Lisa is a frequent presenter at Christos workshops and in the Tending the Holy Program.
