Tuesdays with the Word at 7:00 PM

Tuesday Bible Study in Collaboration with St. Paul’s and Christ Trinity, January 12, 19, 26, February 2, 9, 16

Six Tuesdays, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.“Into the Light: Finding Hope through Prayers of Lament”

Tuesday Bible Study in Collaboration with St. Paul’s and Christ Trinity Epiphany Bible Study Series “Into the Light: Finding Hope through Prayers of Lament” January 12 – February 16, 7:00-8:30 p.m.
In a sermon called “Learning to Lament,” Duke Divinity School professor Ellen Davis says “lament is a cry of human powerlessness, but it is…at the same time an appeal to God’s power and mercy. Strange though it may sound, lament is something we need to learn how to do. As with other kinds of prayer, we need to learn how to appeal to God in good faith, how to speak to God without deceiving ourselves and dishonoring God. Scripture is altogether our best guide to prayer, but you have to ask: How can it guide us in this situation?” (Preaching the Luminous Word, 2016, p. 216) The situation behind Davis’ call to lament was the Gulf Oil Spill of 2010. Now a decade later, in the midst of a pandemic that has taken an incredible toll on the world and affected so many of us personally, the call to a practice of lament is even more pressing.
To that end, the South Berkshire Episcopal/Lutheran Churches will offer a six-week Epiphany Bible Study Series on Tuesdays beginning January 12. The Revs. Sam Smith, Erik Karas, and Libby Wade will be our guides as we engage Biblical laments to help us acknowledge the depths of suffering and lead us to find hope in the midst of that suffering. Contact Libby (libby_wade@yahoo.com) to register for this series or to ask questions. We hope you will join us as part of our Zoom Community!
