Event description: 

When Wisdom Is Silent: Listening for Liturgy’s Strange Voices in Speech-Saturated Public Places

The Aidan Kavanagh Lecture

Jill Y. Crainshaw is Blackburn Professor of Worship and Liturgical Theology at Wake Forest School of Divinity and an ordained teaching elder in the Presbyterian Church (USA). Her writing and teaching emphasize how Christian worship and leadership arise from and return to human experience. Her newest book, “When I in Awesome Wonder: Liturgy Distilled from Everyday Life” (The Liturgical Press, 2017), explores how worship’s sacramental elements such as bread, wine, and water are connected to local fields and farmers, waters and artisans.
