What is joy? Is it fleeting, elusive, always sought after but rarely-if-ever obtained? Does it course through us like a subterranean river, ever-present but tapped only occasionally, when conditions are favorable? Is it always right in front of us, undetected, waiting for us to be awakened to its presence? Is it a small thing, or immense?
These are just a few of the questions Cecilia Amorocho Hickerson has about joy. She looks to theologians, writers and champions of joy for answers and guidance about how we can live more joyously.
