Gayle Boss – Wild Hope

Pangolins and polar bears, olms, lemurs, and leopards. We share this beautiful blue-green globe with creatures magnificent, delicate, intricate – and now vanishing at a faster rate than at any other time in Earths history. Spend Lent with 25 of these wild ones. Vivid descriptions of their lives will fill listeners with wonder – and grief at what they suffer on a planet shaped by human choices. Their stories thaw our stiff hearts and wake us to greater compassion – which is what Lent, meaning springtime, has always been for. These stories also wake in us a wild hope that from all this death and ruin, something new could rise. The promise of Lent is that something new will rise. In fact, as these stories also attest, our hope, though wild, is not impossible and is already loose in the world.
