Pulpit Guest: Eddee Daniel – Much has changed since 1960 when author Wallace Stegner coined the term, geography of hope, to describe wilderness as “an intangible and spiritual resource.” Spending time in sublime natural settings remains a spiritual practice for many. But in a time of anxiety brought on by climate change and other looming environmental challenges, the very idea of nature is shifting to reflect the human impact. We may need to look beyond traditional landscapes to find a new geography of hope.

About our Guest: Eddee Daniel is an author, educator and environmental advocate. His book, Urban Wilderness: Exploring a Metropolitan Watershed, is a journey of discovery both physical and spiritual in the often-surprising landscapes of Milwaukee and its environs.
