"This book has come just in time, reminding us that our own capacity for transformation is as mighty as the roiling upheavals of these uncertain times. Trusting Change faces global loss and crisis without flinching, but also, with compassion, the twists and turns that come to all of us, both welcome or unbidden, the blessings and sorrows comprising every human life. Karen Hering is a wise and generous guide, providing writing prompts, meditations, queries and stories, inviting us to look within and also beyond, for courage, strength and trustworthy hope. This is a book to read quietly, by yourself, when change and loss come crashing down, and it is a book to read together, in circles of mutual support, building together the creative communities that keep us resilient and brave. In these pages we remember what changes we've already weathered. Trusting Change insists that our wisdom is old and deep, nimble, collective, and constantly evolving." --Victoria Safford, author of Walking Toward Morning and With or Without Candlelight
"Trusting Change spoke to me at a time when the world seems dark and uncertain and hope seems to evaporate without a trace. It opened the eyes of my heart to see what is deep inside the chrysalis: life wiggling and squirming in the mass of goo, which has rekindled my flickering hope. Our journey may encounter obstacles along the way, but we can trust that life finds a way when all roads seem closed. Let's continue the journey of transformation with Trusting Change on your side!" --Eleazar S. Fernandez, author of Burning Center, Porous Borders and President of the Union Theological Seminary, Philippines
