Carla Grosch-Miller Reads from Psalms Redux

Pilgrim Congregational Church

Invites you to a reading and reception

On Saturday, August 2,  3:00 to 4:30 pm

In the Parlor 460 Lake Street, Oak Park

Carla Grosch-Miller is a former Senior Pastor at Pilgrim 

The Biblical Psalms are noted as much for their raw honesty as for their beauty and depth. In Psalms Redux, Carla Grosch-Miller takes their powerful themes from a distant and ancient culture and reworks them into striking contemporary poems.  

Some sixty refreshed Psalms reflect the wrestling that accompanies new under-standings of God. Others are wholly new and are written for specific occasions and events in modern life. 

Psalms Redux is not intended to supplant the Psalms that are poetry of the Christian faith. Rather they are aids for those who seek to refresh their vocabulary of prayer and worship.
