Teach Us How to Pray: Poetry and Prayer

  • Course Dates: Tue 19 November, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

This day will explore the role of poets as instructors in the art of prayer, not just as a set of words, but as an affective experience, a form of meditation and a wordless, bodily practice.

The day will involve close reading, reflection and discussion on poems that engage with traditions of public and liturgical prayer, of private and extemporary prayer, and of secular forms of prayer. By the end of the day you will have encountered new literature and read familiar works in a new way, providing food for ongoing spiritual, ministerial and missional practice.
