GOD THROUGH BINOCULARS: A HITCHHIKER AT A MONASTERY – Danusha Goska

March 10 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Share this

Please join UUCP for today’s service at 10:30 a.m. led by special guest speaker and author, Danusha Goska.

Where do you go when there is no place left to go? So often spiritual literature features happy, smiling people who are so much more loved and enlightened than we feel we are. What if we pray, and meditate, and do the right thing, and everything still feels hopeless? Does God or hope or meaning exist in the darkness? Even Mahatma Gandhi feared he had failed. Even Mother Teresa experienced doubt that put her through “the tortures of hell.” Danusha Goska’s new book, “God through Binoculars: A Hitchhiker at a Monastery” tells her own story of navigating one “dark night of the soul.” “God through Binoculars” explores the relationship between spirit and nature, the problem of evil, and moving forward even when it’s all tunnel, no light at the end. And it offers tips on hitchhiking.

DANUSHA GOSKA’S BIO:

Danusha V. Goska was born to Eastern European, peasant immigrants in New Jersey.

She has written several books and many articles, including God Through Binoculars and Save Send Delete.  Professional critics have called her work “inspirational,” “important,” “courageous,” and “groundbreaking.” Goska holds an MA from UC Berkeley, and a PhD from Indiana University Bloomington.
