“A New Song from the Old World: Beauty from Ephrem the Syrian” with Karen W. Marsh

In this “Space for God: Beauty,” Karen Wright Marsh (author and executive director of Theological Horizons) introduces us to the life and work of Ephrem of Syria (c. 306-373).  Eprhem was a Christian pastor, poet, refugee, theologian, and songwriter whose “lyric theology” has the power to refresh our perspectives and our faiths, even today.  Karen concludes our time together by listening prayerfully to a recording of Ephrem’s “Hymn to the Light.”  We hope you will be blessed by this special encounter with beauty!
