HW 002: Keep Your Head Down
“I can’t go on, I’ll go on…” –Samuel Beckett
How in the world do you manage through tough times of crisis, despair, anxiety and loss? In this episode, I encourage you to keep your head down. Keeping your head down is a way through when worlds seem to be crashing in upon you. It’s one-foot-in-front-of-the-other work and involves doing what is right in front of you and involves praying in whatever form that is for you.
This “keep your head down” strategy is the first of many ways to keep yourself moving through tough times. Next week, I’ll talk about finding stillness in the midst of the storm.

Katie Geneva Cannon, PhD, is the Annie Scales Rogers Professor of Christian Ethics, Union Theological Seminary-PSCE in Richmond, VA. The first African American woman ordained in the United Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Cannon focuses her work in the areas of Christian ethics, Womanist theology, and women in religion and society. She has lectured nationally on theological and ethical topics and is the author or editor of numerous articles and seven books including Katie’s Canon: Womanism and the Soul of the Black Community and Black Womanists.
