For the second year, NCR is bringing our readers a four-part series of conversations on spirituality during the Lenten season.
In the third conversation, Soul Seeing for Lent host Michael Leach speaks with Nicole Symmonds, visiting professor at McAfee School of Theology and NCR Sacred Writes Fellow, about finding humanity on Twitter, spreading positivity and love and her journey to Catholicism.
- Tweeting through Lent has meant holding space for people and taking their words seriously, writes Symmonds in her Soul Seeing for Lent column.
- Symmonds also wrote about the spirituality of Wordle, the game that invites us to recognize the virtues of patience and temperance.
- Soul Seeing, which is edited by Leach, is a regular NCR column focused on spirituality and the "peace beyond all understanding." You can read all Soul Seeing columns here.
