Monday, August 3, 1:00-1:30pm - SELAH: Throughout the book of Psalms, there is a mysterious word that comes up over and over again—selah. But we have no idea what this word means! This service embraces not knowing what selah means, for it is when we do not know how to pray that the Spirit intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words. Featuring reading from Toni Morrison’s Beloved.
Monday, August 10 at 1:00 – 1:30 - See marquandchapel.yale.edu/calendar for updates about our worship services and events.
