December 1, 2019, “Radical Acceptance: When There Is No Hope” — Maureen Shaiman, Worship Leader
Most of us have faced despair. Sometimes there is cause for hope. Other times, there is no reason to expect that things will change, and therefore no reason to feel hope. It is at times like these that we can reach for radical acceptance. We can practice seeing things clearly, as they are, without judgment, while feeling profound compassion for ourselves and those around us. Maureen Shaiman will share parts of her journey through despair and some of the techniques she used to live through it, including radical acceptance. Music will be shared by Tom Pelletier, Bethany Riddle, and the Hope Singers.
