Description

These teasing lines from the poet Seamus Heaney will be our starting point for an exploration of how poetry can renew our sense of wonder and surprise and through that wonder, open us to a fresh experience of grace. Drawing on the poetry of Seamus Heaney and R.S. Thomas, this lecture will reflect on the experiences of grace and transfiguration in both sacred and secular settings.
