FSC Book Discussion Group: The Book of Joy


6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Host: Franciscan Spirituality Center 

Location: Online Via Zoom 

Facilitators: Sister Sarah Hennessey and Karna Makrs 

"We are fragile creatures and it is from this weakness, not despite it, that we discover the possibility of true joy," says Nobel Peace Prize winner and theologian Desmond Tutu. What is true JOY, and how do we support it? The Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu share a deep conversation in “The Book of Joy,” with writer Douglas Abrams exploring the connections among joy, anger, suffering, vulnerability, meaning and perspective. These global spiritual leaders fearlessly address what can get in the way of our joy and how to live with courage. We invite you to read this insightful book and join us for a heartfelt conversation through videoconferencing (Zoom in from anywhere in the world!).

Note: The book is not included; you can purchase it on your own or from the FSC’s Sophia Bookstore
