Lenten book study discussion group
Wednesdays at 7:00pm
We will be reading and discussing Prayer In The Night.
Framed around the nighttime prayer of Compline, Tish Harrison Warren (author of Liturgy of the Ordinary) explores the themes of human vulnerability, suffering, and God's seeming absence. When she navigated a time of doubt and loss, the practice of Compline prayer was grounding for her.
“It was this practice that gave me words for my anxiety and grief and allowed me to reencounter doctrines of the church—the church's claims about reality—not as rational, tidy little antidotes for pain but as a light in darkness, as good news."
Where do we find comfort when we lie awake worrying or weeping in the night? This book offers a prayerful and frank approach to the difficulties in our ordinary lives at work, at home, and in a world filled with uncertainty.
