WOMEN WHO WEEP and the Cries of Faith

The Priory Spirituality Center
Women Who Weep and the Cries of Faith
March 17, 2012
Saturday 9:15AM-3:00PM
A multi-media encounter with biblical women – Rachel, Hannah, the
daughters of Jerusalem, and more than one Mary – who weep and
lament in an expression of faith. Come explore how distress shared
in faith can open us to God and each other for the blessing and
wholeness of all.
Register by prior Friday: $50. Bring a sack lunch, journal, picture or other item
representing some significant loss in your life, and a Bible.
(Minimum 5, Maximum 22)
You are welcome to stay a few days for a retreat, if there is room.
Kathryn Rickert, (M. Div., Ph.D.), has explored various biblical, spiritual and
liturgical dimensions of lament — crying out to God in distress — through
teaching, church music and worship that keeps in mind a constructive role for
lament in processes of reconciliation of both penitents and the broken-hearted.

About kathrynrickert

Possibly from watching the movie Bambie at the age of 6, I have had a life-long awareness that saying ONLY nice things, does not make the world just or kind. Thus, my 2009 doctoral dissertation..."Talking Back to God" , is one of the main aspects of the work I do. Always interdisciplinary, seeking connections across borders that are usually marked with DO NOT ENTER, I seek to pay attention, pray, think, create,and imagine using biblical laments, Christian worship texts, and the ordinary stuff of everyday life.
