Cry, Baby: Why Our Tears Matter Talkback

May 21, 2023 @ 12:45 pm - 2:00 pm

Join Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis, Rev. Benjamin Perry, & Dr. David Kyuman Kim after worship for a conversation about Ben’s new book, Cry, Baby: Why Our Tears Matter! The talkback will be held in the East End Temple sanctuary immediately following worship, and on our livestream.

Together, the three will talk about tears as a prophetic force, an embodiment of the fierce and tender love to which God calls us, and a source for somatic wisdom. After the talkback, Ben will be available to sign copies, which you can purchase wherever books are sold.
