What We Need is Here: An Evening of Song and Spoken Words with Parker Palmer, Carrie Newcomer, and Gary Walters
We live in hard times, and hope is sometimes hard to come by. But by faith and the evidence of our own eyes, we know that “what we need is here” (to steal a line from Wendell Berry). It’s our hope that the words, music, and conversation we share during this evening together will reinforce that hope in all of us.
And where, exactly, is what we need to help birth a better world? It’s within us in the human heart and between us in community. We need only to open our eyes, see the secrets hidden in plain sight, reach in and reach out, and liberate the better angels of our nature.
In a time when it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, discouraged or cynical, Carrie, Parker, and Gary offer a journey of mind and spirit characterized by thoughtfulness, realism, vulnerability, good humor and hope.
