For the Anxious and Hopeful

There are many ways in which we humans are vulnerable, and we’ve been working on a collective sharing project all month as a way to practice voicing them.  This morning, we’ll explore some specific vulnerabilities you shared, as well as some of the ways we might keep holding hope in the face of all there is to be anxious about.

Share the Plate

  • The Share the Plate for March 19th and 26 is Centro Hispano. Centro Hispano is the leading nonprofit serving Latinx in Dane County WI. Since its beginnings in 1983, Centro Hispano has provided a range of programs  that support Dane County’s Latinx population.
