Rain falling by the River, A day with Christopher Southgate
Saturday 23 June, 10am-3pm, St Endellion Church
Poetry can open up spaces of reflection, imagination and prayer that are not reached in any other way. Christopher Southgate is Associate Professor in Interdisciplinary Theology at Exeter University and the author of eight collections of poetry.
He will take us on a journey through poems of place, from Patmos to Lindisfarne, poems that strike new sparks from the Scriptures, poems of suffering and grief, poems of the spiritual life, honestly faced. The emphasis will be on encouraging our own explorations, offering us new angles on the imaginative life.
Tickets £10. Bring a picnic lunch.
