Join Irish poet and theologian Pádraig Ó Tuama for a conversation about his work at the Church of the Redeemer, 5603 N. Charles Street, in Baltimore.

Ó Tuama is a theologian, conflict resolution mediator, and the author of four volumes of poetry, Daily Prayer with the Corrymeela Community (2017), In the Shelter (2015), Sorry for your Troubles (2013), and Readings from the Books of Exile (2012), which was long-listed for the 2013 Polari First Book Prize. For Ó Tuama, religion, conflict, power, and poetry all circle around language, that original sacrament. Working fluently on the page and in public, Ó Tuama is a compelling poet, teacher, and group worker, and a profoundly engaging public speaker. He has worked with groups to explore story, conflict, their relationship with religion and argument, and violence. Using poetry, group discussion and lectures, his work is marked both by lyricism and pragmatism, and includes a practice of evoking stories and participation from attendees at his always-popular lectures, retreats, and events.

If you are unable to attend in person, you can watch live on YouTube. For more information, visit Church of the Redeemer’s website.

This event is organized by the Church of the Redeemer and co-sponsored by the SNF Agora Institute.
