Hope and the Reality of Interdependence – Zoom Event

Join Dean of Divinity and Margaret E. Fleck Chair in Anglican Studies, Christopher Brittain for his presentation on Hope and the Reality of Interdependence.

recent article in Macleans magazine laments that, in the face of the globe’s current challenges, “Many of us have come to regard hope with disdain.” This lecture offers reasons to continue to have hope, and reflects on what it means to live in hope. Part of the answer lies in learning from our emerging sense of mutual connection and interdependence.  Hope — clear-eyed, rational, compassionate — acknowledges that the outcome of the future is uncertain, which provides a basis for efforts try to change what is to come.
