Stories That Could Be True

Stories That Could Be True The Roles of Gratitude and Poetry in the Spiritual Life

Due to the extraordinary times we’re living through, this retreat on gratitude is being offered as a virtual event. It’s about poets and lepers and mystics and other essential workers in the story of faith. It’s about you and me, about health and anxiety and unwelcome surprises. It’s about poet William Stafford and mystic Thomas Merton and my mother and your family. It’s about rediscovering how words and solitude come together to teach us something we already know about what it means to be human.
