This Here Flesh:
Spirituality, Liberation, and the Stories That Make Us
In her book This Here Flesh, Cole Arthur Riley boldly explores some of the most urgent questions of life and faith: How do we honor, lament, and heal from the stories we inherit. How can we find peace in a world overtaken with dislocation, noise and unrest? How can spirituality not silence the body but instead allow it to come alive? Arthur Riley invites us to descend into our own stories, examine our capacity for rest, wonder, rejoicing, rage, and repair, and find that our humanity is not an enemy to faith but evidence of it. This Here Flesh speaks potently to anyone who suspects that our own stories might have something to say to us.
This class will meet by Zoom on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm on March 22, March 29 and April 12. It will be led by The Rev. Mary Rodgers and Kathy Hermann.
