Poetic Wisdom and the Jesus Story

This will be an experiential workshop led by celebrated writer and teacher Fr Diarmuid O'Murchu, exploring how poetry and other arts can illuminate Gospel wisdom. Diarmuid writes: “I have been exploring for many years the power of poetry to uncover and articulate levels of meaning which the prose of the Gospels often fails to illuminate. Poetry divulges a different kind of Jesus: more prophetic, empowering, liberating and challenging for how we live our faith in daily life. Together, we will explore these emerging insights into Gospel wisdom.”

Diarmuid recommends his books ‘Jesus in the Power of Poetry’ (2009) and ‘Christianity's Dangerous Memory’ (2011) as advanced reading if at all possible.

Diarmuid is a priest and social psychologist with extensive international experience facilitating workshops on Adult Faith Development (see www.diarmuid13.com).

Led by: Fr Diarmuid O'Murchu

Please arrive by 6pm on Friday. Course ends with lunch on Sunday.
