Cole Arthur Riley on Finding Rest and Discovering Yourself in Difficult Times + "This Here Flesh" - Her Upcoming Book

Heromakers Podcast

Jan 25 2022 • 46 mins

In this episode, Laurie and Ann talk with Cole Arthur Riley, a writer and liturgist who founded Black Liturgies, a project seeking to integrate concepts of dignity, lament, rage, justice, rest, and liberation with the practice of written prayer. In this episode we talk with Cole about her family and upbringing (including her heromaker Dad) and why she was prompted to start Black Liturgies in the summer/fall of 2020. We talk about wrestling with pain and trauma, and why rest and rediscovery may be the answer to our losses and wounds.

Cole is honest about the growth of her platform and being authentic to herself, and of course we talk about her upcoming book by Convergent Books - it's a must-read to understand black history and roundedness and to rediscover some missing elements that make for a fuller and richer life.
