SE – Book Study on Learning to Walk in the Dark

February 8 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Monday, repeating until March 1, 2021

“Learning to Walk in the Dark” provides a way to find spirituality in those times when we don’t have all the answers. Barbara Brown Taylor has become increasingly uncomfortable with our tendency to associate all that is good with lightness and all that is evil and dangerous with darkness. Doesn’t God work in the nighttime as well? Barbara Brown Taylor argues that we need to move away from our “solar spirituality” and ease our way into appreciating “lunar spirituality” (since, like the moon, our experience of the light waxes and wanes). Through darkness we find courage, we understand the world in new ways, and we feel God’s presence around us, guiding us through things seen and unseen. Often, it is while we are in the dark that we grow the most.
With her characteristic charm and literary wisdom, Barbara Brown Taylor is our guide through a spirituality of the nighttime, teaching us how to find our footing in times of uncertainty and giving us strength and hope to face all of life’s challenging moments. Beth’s facilitation style is relaxed and conversational, and she looks forward to great conversations as together we move through an extraordinary time that has had many of us feeling lost and alone.
