Tending to Grief through Beauty and Art with Author Rachel Marie Kang

April 11 at 7:00 pm8:30 pm EDT

Sponsored by Gordon-Conwell’s Leighton Ford Initiative in Theology, the Arts, and Gospel Witness.

Grief undulates—it is one thing to one person and presents differently to and through another. This is why we need language for loss; space to give voice to the personal and collective grief we carry. In her compassionate and deeply personal book, The Matter of Little Losses, author Rachel Marie Kang explores loss through a framework of poetry, poignant storytelling, and reflective explorations on art and faith. Join us for a soulful, soothing evening as we ponder the invitation to tend to grief through beauty and art. Among select readings, Rachel Marie Kang will lead the night with poetic and practical reflections that will help participants (and, thus, the people they serve) make meaning as they grieve the things that always mattered—and always will.

Rachel Marie Kang is a New York native, born and raised just outside New York City. A mixed woman of African American, Native American (Ramapough Lenape Nation), Irish, and Dutch descent, she holds a degree in English with Creative Writing, and a minor in Bible. She is founder of The Fallow House and her writing has been featured in Christianity Today, Ekstasis, Proverbs 31 Ministries, She Reads Truth, and (in)courage. Rachel is the author of Let There Be Art and The Matter of Little Losses.

Copies of The Matter of Little Losses will be available for $15 at the event (one-night offer only), and anyone who purchases the book (cash, check, or Venmo) will receive a code to redeem a free copy of the audiobook. Tickets for entry are free, but please register to reserve your spot.
