Column: Jennifer Howe Peace on the Season of Hope
Wicked Local Cambridge, Dec. 25, 2017

"As we approach Christmas Day, I’m thinking about the temptation to skip ahead to 'Comfort and Joy,'" Jennifer Howe Peace reflects in a Christmas column for Wicked Local Cambridge.

Looking back on a 2017 that in many ways seemed like the "upside down world" of the Netflix horror series Stranger Things, with hate rallies called "Free Speech Events" and "a sanction for bigotry at the highest levels," Jennifer expresses the turmoil within many this year.

However, "whenever I feel despondent about current events, I think about Mary’s birth pangs," Jennifer writes. "Hope for new life in the midst of impossible circumstances."
