In this short course, participants will read poetry contemplatively, sometimes writing in response, and explore how the words, music, and images that we encounter in poems can help us respond more deeply to God’s presence in our lives. Poets to be read include Gerard Manley Hopkins, Mary Oliver, Denise Levertov, Joy Harjo, Wendell Berry, Lucille Clifton and others.
