Christian Poetry and the Christian Journey: Illumination and Mysticism in Blake, Hopkins, Merton, Levertov, and Oliver
Certificate in Spiritual Formation
Lifelong Learning / Alumni & Alumnae / Pastors & Community
This class engages its participants with poems as a away to comprehend the universal path of spiritual encounter. As Christians these poets chart the mystery of the Triune God as encountered through our human senses. Not by rational argument, but through the wonder of "creative intuition" these poets, in the Western tradition, alert readers to the presence of God's grace. Reading and re-reading them , as in Lectio Divina, can be akin to prayer. Details and Registration.
