The Poetics of the Sacred Imagination

11:10 AM at Jul 13, 2019 by Joel McKerrow

Creativity should never be relegated as the ‘pretty-bits-around-the-edges’ in our discourse on the sacred, or our engagement with the world. 

Rather, it sits at the very core of our explorations into God and the self and the world. The poetic voice therefore is a great revealer of the mysteries as it does not seek to answer the questions of our inner world but rather to explore the way these questions move within us. Joel Mckerrow will be reading/performing his dynamic works of poetry seeking to draw us into a different mode of listening by which our inside worlds might be touched with both the aching pain and the delicious hope of our existence upon this sacred earth.
