Hope Story Circle with Maggie Oman Shannon - June 26, 2021
As a minister, things were very difficult for our guest, Maggie Oman Shannon during the pandemic. Wanting to connect with her parishioners, and remain connected with all aspects of her life became challenging. She took the time to complete a book — her ninth book — that had been in the making for 23 years, and had been rejected by her publisher three different times. The book is about hope, called Have Hope: 365 Encouraging Poems, Prayers, and Meditations for Daily Inspiration. The inquiry explored the question: is there an idea inside of you right now, that has been percolating, that might have all of the right things in place now to bring it forward? The timing, the people, the circumstances, the community - everything is ready and in alignment? Check the calendar of Events at www.peacealliance.org - join us at our next Hope Story Circle and share your emerging stories!

Maggie Oman Shannon will show you how to “put down the prozac and pick up the prayer beads!” Shannon’s book, Crafting Calm, informs the reader of spiritual practices gathered from crafts communities around the world. Organized into eight chapters, Shannon addresses different intentions to help people ”craft” calm, clarity, comfort, contemplation, connection with others and connection with Spirit. Her intention is to help people with process—the spiritual journey of creating—rather than with end results. Her workshops help participants dive within themselves where, “…the waters of creativity, spirituality and personal identity blend and swirl.”
