Online Retreat Day: Poetry and Prayers: from Hooker to Herbert, and beyond An online retreat with Malcolm Guite
On the feast day of Richard Hooker, poet-priest Malcolm Guite will engage us in a spiritual journey with the poetry of George Herbert.
Malcolm Guite published After Prayer, his poetic response to George Herbert’s poem Prayer in October 2019. Malcolm has a particular interest in the imagination as a truth-bearing faculty and continues to reflect deeply on how poetry can stimulate and re-awaken our prayer life.
The day is hosted by the Craighead Institute of Life and Faith, Glasgow in partnership with St Bride’s Episcopal Church, Hyndland, Glasgow.
The cost for the day is £10. To register click on the link below: Eventbrite Link
