More than an invitation, Hope in Disarray is a passionate and personal summons to conscious and compassionate living. Ranging through terrain as rough and varied as climate change, racism, gun violence, and sexual abuse, this book challenges readers to examine our comfortable certainties, imagine a more just world, and take action to bring it into being.
—Dr. Laura Alary, writer, storyteller, and educator
I turned the last page with a fresh infusion of inspiration to live a life of compassionate, sustained action, no matter how difficult the challenges.

Fascinating and yes I agree we have to take the pain and feelings of despair seriously. We cannot just switch to that for me ‘humbug’ of just be positive. It takes healing.
Yes it does take healing…..thank you
I do wonder at the amount of misinformation in the US and denial of climate change. We are at the tipping point for biodiversity. I found a really pro Trump blogger who also loved wolves. There seems to be such mismatch. Yes, the life of Jesus shows how we do have to strive for justice for those who are discriminated against.
True, justice for those discriminated against…which includes all of creation. Thank you.
