‘To restore one’s soul’

Watch a video of one of the powerful poems featured in our new anthology.

‘To restore one’s soul’ by Amanda Button is featured in Dignity, Agency, Power – the anthology of poems, prayers, reflections and stories published by Wild Goose PUblications to mark Church Action on Poverty’s 40th anniversary in 2022.

Amanda Button works with our partners ATD Fourth World. We’re very grateful to Amanda and ATD for allowing us to reproduce the poem in the book, and for producing the video above.
