Tweener’s Book Study—Starts October 25t

This fall we will be reading Barbara Brown Taylor’s best selling book “Learning to Walk in the Dark.”
Taylor has become increas-ingly uncomfortable with our tendency to associate all that is good with lightness and all that is evil and dan-gerous with darkness. Doesn’t God work in the nighttime as well? In Learn-ing to Walk in the Dark, Taylor asks us to put aside our fears and anxieties and to explore all that God has to teach us “in the dark.” She argues that we need to move away from our “solar spirituality” and ease our way into appreciating “lunar spirituality” (since, like the moon, our experience of the light waxes and wanes). Through darkness we find courage, we understand the world in new ways, and we feel God’s presence around us, guiding us through things seen and unseen. Of-ten, it is while we are in the dark that we grow the most.
With her characteristic charm and literary wisdom, Taylor is our guide through a spirituality of the nighttime, teaching us how to find our footing in times of uncertainty and giving us strength and hope to face all of life’s challenging mo-ments.
Join us for our first session on October 25th @ 7pm as we begin to look at how Barbara Brown Taylor teaches us about darkness!!
