Julian of Norwich: Wisdom for a Time of Pandemic & Beyond

Nov 13, 2020-- "A time of crisis and chaos, the kind that a pandemic brings, is, among other things, a time to call on our ancestors for their deep wisdom. Not just knowledge but true wisdom is needed in a time of death and profound change, for at such times we are beckoned not simply to return to the immediate past, that which we remember fondly as the normal, but to reimagine a new future, a renewed humanity, a more just and therefore sustainable culture, and one even filled with joy. Julian of Norwich (1342ca.1429) is one of those ancestors calling to us today. After all, she lived her entire life during the worst pandemic in European history the Bubonic plague that killed 40-50% of the population." Matthew Fox shares more in this excerpt from his new book on Julian of Norwich. (9441 reads)
