Tuesday Night Delights
March 2 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Is joy a calling, precisely in a moment like this? Let’s practice watching for moments of delight in our daily lives and share them with one another weekly. It may seem odd to discover joy during this solemn season, but Ross Gay, writer and English professor at Indiana University, would say that joy and Lent are uniquely related. He feels that the temporary nature of our human condition allows us to find delight in all sorts of places. Inspired by his collection of essays, The Book of Delights, you’re invited to watch for delight in one area of your life each week and then share what you noticed with church friends through writing, storytelling, or poetry.
If you decided to read along with Ross Gay’s The Book of Delights as we enjoy Tuesday Night Delight together, here is the optional reading for this week. As you write, draw, photograph your delight this week, if you find yourself stuck, here is a prompt; please don’t feel constrained by the prompt.
Prompt: Train your focus on nature
Facilitated by Śānti Matthews, Youth and Adult Education Coordinator.
