All are invited to experience the 2020 Presbyterian Women / Horizons Bible Study: "Into the Light: Finding Hope Through Prayers of Lament" led by the Author and Artist P. Lynn Miller

"Into the Light: Finding Hope Through Prayers of Lament" revives lament as a proper theological response to the difficult situations of our world. One of the foundational points of the study is that, in scripture, lament usually leads to hope. After crying out to God, the one who laments remembers God. And while that doesn’t fix things in the moment — the injustice, the loss still exist — the lamenter is strengthened to face the world and to hope. And for us as Christians, hope is not just an emotional response or an attitude of pie in the sky. Hope implies movement: both God’s inherent movement toward justice and our movement toward God. Recovering lament may be one of the church’s most timely gifts to the world.

P. Lynn Miller, author and artist, is a Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). She has served as a workshop leader, graphic designer, and keynote speaker for conferences and gatherings on theology, worship, spirituality, education, and the arts.
