'Trauma + Grace' on The Emmaus Road • A Visit with Serene Jones

Date: April 18, 2022
7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Off-site Location


“As we try to make meaning in the aftermath of collectively experienced traumatic events, what should be the work of the church?” Serene Jones, author of Trauma + Grace and president of Union Theological Seminary in New York, posed that question in the aftermath of September 11, 2001.

Considering the traumas our nation has experienced in the past two years—political, racial, epidemiological—her question is as urgent as ever.

Join us on Zoom for a visit with President Jones, with the readings of Holy Week and Easter still in mind. We’ll reflect specifically on the Emmaus Road narrative (Luke 24: 14-33) so consider spending time with that passage before we gather.
