Be Anxious for Nothing: Loss and Joy in Unexpected Change
November 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
What do the Bible, Torah, Qur’an, and sacred music say about change? How do we hold space for grief and still find opportunities for joy and growth? We seek common experiences in different traditions through panel discussion and song.
Sacred texts in the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim traditions are collections of stories about the human experience and our interactions with the divine. These texts give many people hope that there are paths to navigating a “new normal” when unexpected and dramatic life changes occur. Sacred music adds an emotional component and deepens a feeling of connection to these stories and their lessons.
This event seeks out common experiences in different traditions through panel discussion and song. Music will be performed by members of the partner congregations and will be punctuated by brief readings from each faith tradition with a panel discussion at the end.
Speakers and musicians include Rabbi Brett Krichiver, Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation; The Very Reverend Gray Lesesne, Christ Church Cathedral; and Sr. Pastor Darian C. Bouie, Progressive Baptist Church; and Imam Ismail Abdul-Aleem, Masjid al-Mumineen. Moderated by the Right Reverend Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis.
