We are entering an extraordinarily unique Holy Week. The week’s tensions of death and resurrection, darkness and light, fear and courage, despair and joy are perhaps more palpable and complex than any of us have experienced in our lifetimes. What will it be like to follow the mysterious movements of the Spirit this week, the Spirit who calls us to freedom, creativity, and improvisation? What will it look like for God to hold us and our communities together and sustain us with deep, abiding joy, amidst our fears and anxiety? How will we encounter the empty tomb?
We are joined by Yale Divinity’s Associate Professor of Systematic Theology and Africana Studies, Willie Jennings, and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary’s Interim Director of Doctor of Ministry Program, Denise Thorpe. Denise and Willie will engage us in conversation around all the themes of Holy Week. As Willie has said, “Joy is the work of improvisation.” That has never been more true than now!
