Prayer in the Night: For Those Who Work or Watch or Weep
Ideas That Matter is an online lecture series hosted by Regent College this academic year with the purpose of cultivating theological engagement with contemporary issues that are particularly relevant at this cultural moment.
Regent College and the Regent College Bookstore are excited to welcome Rev. Tish Harrison Warren for the launch of her new book, Prayer in the Night: For Those Who Work or Watch or Weep. In this book, Rev. Warren addresses the question: How can we trust God in the dark? Framed around a nighttime prayer of Compline, Prayer in the Night explores themes of human vulnerability, suffering, and God's seeming absence. During this timely conversation, Rev. Warren will be discussing her new book as well as reflecting on the role of spiritual disciplines to keep us anchored to Jesus when the world seems upside down.
