In the last episode, Erin and Hannah discussed the hurdles and struggles we face in our attempts to cultivate goodness, finding another point of shared experience in the brokenness of the world.

In keeping with that conversation, we’re taking a brief Interlude from our larger series, Finding Common Ground, and invite you to listen in as Hannah Anderson reads an excerpt from her recently released book, Turning of Days: Lessons from Nature, Season, and Spirit. “How does one live in this place between longing and fulfillment? How do you dare to hope when the world is so harsh and cares nothing for your good work? How can you sustain hope in the face of it all? How can you not be chilled until your heart slowly freezes over?”
