The College of Preachers event:

The heart of preaching is in part an engagement with beauty and truth and the ultimate source from which they both derive. Jesus and St Paul are both poets; the one is at home with parable, and the other revels in paradox. Their words move and inspire, and point to the graced possibilities of all human lives. Preachers are Christ’s troubadours and words, the very best words, should form part of their armoury. In this workshop we shall explore why the right words matter. As St John Henry Newman insisted, ‘with us a poetic view of things is a duty.’ 

Workshop leader: Canon Dr Rod Garner, Anglican priest, writer, and theologian
