Re-imagine life, work & faith in turbulent times.

Sometimes I feel paralyzed when I start to think about all of the challenges that our world faces: war, peak oil, limited resources, and natural disasters.  When I start to feel discouraged I like to read any of the books by my long time friend, Tom Sine.  Tom is a local author and international speaker who works as a consultant in futures research and planning for organizations including Habitat for Humanity, and Bread for the World.  In Tom’s books and talks he takes a good hard look at the challenges we all face but instead of compounding the despair, he raises our hope by recounting stories of individuals, families, and communities whose imagination has been liberated for compassionate and creative responses.  This Wednesday, November 3rd Tom will be speaking on campus at the Public Square Forum hosted by Magis from 6:30-8:30pm in LeRoux, Student Center 160.  Tom’s talk is titled, “Is There Life After Jesuit Education: Re-imagining Life, Work, & Faith for Turbulent Times.”  Feel free to join us if you need a good dose of hope!
