The poetic form of the collect invites us to collect our thoughts, discern our intentions, and craft our words, “putting language around mystery.” Join poet and theologian Pádraig Ó Tuama for this afternoon workshop as we explore how to write these simple, heart-felt, prayers.

Irish poet and theologian Pádraig Ó Tuama’s work centers around themes of language, power, conflict and religion. He is the author of four books of poetry and prose: Daily Prayer with the Corrymeela Community, In the Shelter, Sorry for your Troubles, and Readings from the Books of Exile. He presents the podcast Poetry Unbound with On Being Studios, where he also has responsibilities in bringing art and theology into public and civic life. From 2014-2019 he was the leader of the Corrymeela Community, Ireland’s oldest peace and reconciliation community. He is based in Ireland.

Registrants will be sent information with a Zoom login the weekend of the workshop. Tickets: $25
