Praying with poetry, Sydney
July 8, 2017$30
Participants will explore ways in which poetry can lead to prayer by sharing some of the thoughts, feelings and experiences that poets lay before us. They will also examine the way in which poets use images, rhythms and techniques that continue to enrich and surprise us.
Poems used will come from a wide range of poets including Mary Oliver, R.S. Thomas, Gerard Manly Hopkins, Jessica Powers, Edwina Gateley, Rainer Maria Rilke and Denise Levertov.
There will be time for quiet reflection. Participants are invited to bring along a favourite poem to share. It need not be one that leads to prayer.
Facilitator: Good Samaritan Sister Glenda Bourke has taught at Yarra Theological Union in Melbourne for many years. She is well respected as a teacher and scholar with qualifications in arts, education, theology and scripture.
