Radix Project 9 Opening Plenary: Hope in Hard Times

January 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

OPENING PLENARY: SUNDAY, JANUARY 8, 2023, 7–8 P.M., online via Zoom only

The Radix Project is an opportunity to gather in small groups, share their stories, reflect on Holy Scripture and sacred art, and pray for one another with intention. This fall, the theme for Radix 9 is Hope in Hard Times.

As Christians, we are called to be people of hope, but what does that mean? In the face of so many challenges—globally, ecologically, economically, socially, and individually—it can be difficult to avoid falling prey to cynicism or even despair. Our scriptures are replete with words of encouragement that do not deny the struggles and suffering of life while also offering a buoyant resilience that is nourished by expectant hope—not that God will swoop in and sweep it all away, but that God is stirring in this world with us, and has endowed us with gifts that sustain us until we are primed to see (really see!) the brilliant inbreaking of the holy and healing presence of God’s hope in us, for us, and for all creation. We discover this beautiful truth in community, and Radix groups are designed to help us consider what that looks like. All are welcome and encouraged to participate in a Radix small group.

The Plenary Presentation with Dean Thomason and the Radix Project team will be Sunday, January 8, 7 p.m., via Zoom only. All are welcome and encouraged to join the Plenary, whether or not you plan to participate in the small groups. Join the plenary using this Zoom link.
