Divining New Orleans: Invoking Wisdom for the Redemption of Place

Divining New Orleans: Invoking Wisdom for the Redemption of Place

(p.454) Divining New Orleans: Invoking Wisdom for the Redemption of Place

Anne Daniell

Fordham University Press

This chapter may be read more as an invocation, even as a prayer, than an argument. It is meant both to invoke and evoke, to summon the spirit of hope and to instigate incarnations of wisdom in the “City that Care Forgot.” It ponders the fate of New Orleans after hurricanes Katrina and Rita in the late summer of 2005, and calls for compassionate wisdom—indeed, for the realm of God—to take root in this place. Composed during the first several months following the deluge and destruction of approximately 80 percent of the city, the chapter is reflective of the news and emotions that surfaced during that time.

Keywords:   New Orleans, hurricane Katrina, wisdom, ecological theology
