Most Christians read the Bible for comfort, instruction, and inspiration. Yet the Bible is also a resource that gives us permission to raise our voices to God in pain, anger, protest, and grief. During these challenging days of COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter, we can be grateful to PCUSA Presbyterian Women for offering the Horizons Bible Study as a resource for appropriating lament in our faith experience.
The class will be taught by Lib McGregor Simmons and Peter Bynum on a rotating basis. Participants may wish to obtain a copy of the Horizons Bible Study Into the Light: Finding Hope Through Prayers of Lament although this is not required. And take note: the class is NOT for women only, but for anyone who wishes to deepen one's relationship to God through Bible study and prayer.
