Taking It Home, Workshop 7: Isaiah - Exile and Hope

In "Wisdom from the Hebrew Scriptures," a Tapestry of Faith program

Despair? Did someone say despair was a question in the world? Well, then listen to the sons of those who have known little else if you wish to know the resiliency of this thing you would so quickly resign to mythhood, this thing called the human spirit. — Lorraine Hansberry (1930 — 1965), African American playwright and essayist, author of A Raisin in the Sun, which opened on Broadway in 1973

With family members and trusted friends, talk about your experiences of exile and suffering and of hope and triumph. Explore more of the videos in the It Gets Better project or find examples of the themes of exile and hope in popular culture, movies, and adult and children's literature.
