Holy Resilience: Summer Worship Series

Rev. Dr. E. Scott Jones
May 10 2018

Jewish historian Simon Schama writes that the Hebrew Scriptures are “not a rehearsal for grief but a struggle against its inevitability.”

In our worship this summer we will explore the Biblical story as it relates to the trauma of exile.  The ancients responded in a variety of ways, and we do as well.  Let’s encourage the healthier responses and avoid the less healthy ones.

Our worship will bring us into contact with some texts we don’t explore very often and also give us a chance to explore some familiar ones in a new context.

This series will begin on June 17 and run through August 26.  We’ll post details soon.
