Wednesday Seekers Returns with a wonderful Offering
Sowing Tears, Reaping Joy: The Bible and Brahm’s Requiem
is a seven-week Bible study on the experience of grief.
Participants will listen to “Ein Deutsches Requiem” (“A German Requiem”) composed by Johannes Brahms and discuss the biblical texts he chose for his composition.
Discussion will be facilitated by
Rev. Tim Ensworth.
Sowing Tears, Reaping Joy
is about the intersection of music and faith. We will follow Brahm’s lead in a very personal and human (his words) journey “not ... from grief to hope, but through grief in hope” (the study author’s words). His requiem affirms that our very real experiences of grief need not diminish our hope, but that neither does the presence of genuine hope obviate our
need to live with our grief.
Participants will use the resource book, Sowing Tears, Reaping Joy:
The Bible and Brahm’s Requiem
written by Carol Bechtel Reynolds, published by the Kerygma Program.
The book costs $15 and will be made available at the first session. The Bible study will run seven consecutive
Wednesdays, 10:00-11:30 am.
To register, please sign-up down in the parish hall.
