Speaker: The Rev. Dr. Adele Smith-Penniman

Harvesting Hope in Perplexing Times

Our litany of woes may be substantial: a world which knows war more than peace; a loved one facing serious illness; a neighbor fearing eviction…. How might we approach challenge with grace? How might we cultivate hope in the tiny plot of earth we each tend?

The Rev. Dr. Adele Smith-Penniman is delighted to return to Amherst. A retired UU minister, Adele has worked in parish, social justice and educational settings. She lives in the woods of Wendell and enjoys her cel-lo, weaving, and (above all) her grandchildren.
