Lent at Saint George’s

February 14, 2014 at 4:30 pm

Weeknight Series

This year, we have a series based on Lenten poetry, meeting on a weeknight during Lent.  Two of the sessions will take place on Wednesday evenings and two on Tuesday evenings.  Everyone is encouraged to attend all the sessions if able to do so, but if you are not free on Tuesday evenings, you are encouraged to come to the Wednesday evening sessions and vice versa.

The fourth and final session will take place on Wednesday, April 9th, following the usual pattern, and will be led by Daniel Watson.  At this session, we will consider “Rúnatal” from the Elder Edda, William Blake’s “The Tyger” and T.S. Eliot’s East Coker: III.  All are welcome to attend.

Epiphany Study Group: Faith, Hope, and Poetry

January 20, 2014 at 10:21 am

This is the season of Epiphany, the time in our church year when we focus on the mystery of God’s self-manifestation – on the Good News that “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).

But what is “truth”, and how can we possibly know it? Is it accessible to reasoning alone? Or does imagination – and the arts that stimulate and give expression to imagination, such as poetry – have an essential role to play, without which our thinking becomes imbalanced and misses the mark?

This study group will seek answers by examining poems that span the history of English poetry, as they are opened up for us by the brilliantly insightful Anglican theologian, poet and musician, Malcolm Guite, in his book, Faith, Hope and Poetry.

This study is not just for lovers of poetry! It is also for those who have never been attracted to poetry because they find it intimidating, puzzling, or simply irrelevant.

We meet on Thursdays at 7:30 pm, beginning January 16, at the home of Barbara and Stan Armstrong. If you would like to participate, please contact the Parish Office for more information.
