Faculty-Staff Luncheon: What the Angels Left: A Poetry Lunch Discussion with Marie Howe
Faculty-Staff Luncheon: March 18, 11:30 a.m., TRC, Main Building, CSB
Catholic poet Marie Howe will reflect on her writing, her way of being in the world, and how her Catholicism has influenced her spirituality. Join Marie as she imaginatively explores deep and diverse theological questions:
Where did the angels go? Who or what might angels be in our world, and what is their gift? What, in 2013, is a devil? Is there a "good thief" in our lives? Where is the Kingdom of heaven? What does the nativity really mean? What about resurrection?
Poetry for Marie has been a way to enter questions like these and to listen in silence for God's answer. Is poetry, then, equivalent to prayer-a spiritual/theological/religious practice?
All faculty and staff who sign up for the luncheon will receive a complimentary copy of Howe's The Kingdom of Ordinary Time. Seating is limited, so please email Carol Johannes to reserve a space.
