One Church, One Book
This Here Flesh
During Lent, St. David's will read together This Here Flesh by Cole Arthur Riley. In this The New York Times best seller, the author attempts to broaden the understanding of spiritual practices and contemplation by using stories from her African American heritage, scripture, and her own embodied journey as a black woman in American culture.
Multiple book study groups are offered both online and in person. Choose the day of the week and time that you prefer by clicking the button below. St. David's youth group will have its own book study during regular formation meetings.
Cole Arthur Riley will be with us via zoom on Palm Sunday, April 2, for a conversation with the author. Cole currently serves as spiritual teacher in residence with Cornell University’s Office of Spirituality and Meaning Making. She is also the creator of Black Liturgies, a space that integrates spiritual practice with Black emotion, Black literature, and the Black body; and a project of The Center for Dignity and Contemplation, where she serves as Curator.
