Faith+Culture: Poetry & The Church
August 29th, 2017
Location: Connors Home, 7PM - 9PM Led by Lynnette St. George
Poets, Pastors, and Priests: What do they have to say about the clergy and the church? Plenty! In the 16th and 17th century the church was in turmoil, not unlike today. They clergy was under scrutiny, not unlike today. The people of God had trust issues with the church and the clergy, not unlike today. George Herbert, English 17th century poet and Anglican priest devoted his life to the people’s very valid apprehensions. Do Herbert’s writings and poetry still hold wisdom for today? That is the precise question that will drive our conversation on Poets, pastors, and priests. The discussion will be launched by a morsel of reformation history, poetry, and the role of a pastor according to Herbert. Led by Lynnette St. George, a Denver Pres attender, educator, author, and poetry aficionado.
Dessert provided, childcare not provided.
