“I do not at all understand the mystery of grace - only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.” In her most recent book, Almost Everything: Notes on Hope, New York Times- bestselling author Anne Lamott brings us what we perhaps need most, how to bring hope back into our lives. Hear her at 7:30 pm, Sunday, April 7, at Benaroya Hall.
Even when life is at its bleakest--when we are, as she puts it, “doomed, stunned, exhausted and over-caffeinated”– the seeds of rejuvenation are at hand. “All truth is paradox,” Lamott writes, “and this turns out to be a reason for hope. If you arrive at a place in life that is miserable, it will change.” Profound and humorous, Lamott encourages us to rediscover nuggets of hope and wisdom that are buried within us that can make life sweeter than we ever imagined.
Rev. Dr. Kelle Brown will introduce Ms. Lamott. Discounted tickets for the Hall’s center first two rows are available $25/each. Contact Diane.Subscribe
