The third gathering in our series of seven will focus on EMILY OF DEEP VALLEY by Maud Hart Lovelace, and we will discuss the novel as well as learn more about the vice of despair and the virtue of hope. Please sign up here to receive the zoom link. These moderated meetings aren't recorded as I seek to create a safe, open space for sharing.
Thus far we've discussed ANNE OF GREEN GABLES (rigidity and love) and HEIDI (alienation and faith). During the latter gathering, my Aha! moment came as we explored Heidi's loving restoration of her Grandfather into community. One of our friends pointed out that an invitation to serve Peter's Grandmother by repairing her cottage was a crucial step in calling out the Alm-Uncle's true self and reminding him of his connection to others.
Please come with an open mind and an open heart to be changed by encountering classic stories, flaws and all. Auntie Maud's story is the perfect holiday season read as we seek to grow in hope. Bring a hot beverage and light a candle and join us.
