A Poetic Celebration of Christian Hope. Episode 7 in Seeking the Gift of Hope Series

July 27, 2020

This episode is a poetic exploration of the theme of hope. Spirituality opens our hearts and arouses our imagination; poetry does this better than prose. Listen in as Rev. Martin Smith reads extracts in translation from the beautiful poems of Charles Péguy about hope. Péguy was a prolific writer noted for his passionate advocacy for social justice and political integrity who in midlife rediscovered his faith, and sadly was one of the first French casualties of World War 1.
