Liturgy that Matters – July 5, 2020 – Song of Songs 2:8-13
Themes: This week is all about desire, longing, and passion – love as eros. We look at the ways this form of love has been devalued and decentered by patriarchal traditions. Uplifting the wisdom of Audre Lorde, Wendy Farley, and other feminist thinkers, we wonder about understanding God less as one who brings change through control and more as a God who births new worlds through longings and desire. How does this theological shift shape our own practices of collective liberation?
