Words Beyond Words: Poetry inspired by sacred texts | Part 1

Tuesday, September 17th 2019, 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Doug Adams Gallery, 2400 Ridge Road Berkeley, CA 94709

CARe is delighted to announce an evening of poetry and discussion with Irish poet and theologian Pádraig Ó Tuama.

Working fluently on the page and with groups of people, Pádraig is a skilled speaker, teacher and group worker. His work has won acclaim in circles of poetry, politics, religion, psychotherapy and conflict analysis.

The evening will include a reading of select poems responding to the theme of sacred texts, as illustrated in CARe's 2019 Fall exhibition, Beyond Words. Acclaimed poet and pastor Rev. Nate Klug lead discussion on the ways in which faith relates to poetry and the creative process. There will be an opportunity for questions from the audience.

This event is free and open to the public!

Part two of this poetry series will take place on Thursday, September 26. 

The Doug Adams Gallery is the primary exhibition space for the Center for the Arts & Religion at the Graduate Theological Union.
