I’m thrilled to offer a class at the Glen Workshop, run by the delicious folks at Image Journal, in July 2019 in New Mexico, USA. The Glen Workshop is a weeklong gathering that’s equal parts creative workshop, arts festival, and spiritual retreat.

The class I’ll be offering is called ‘Poetry and Preaching’. This workshop will examine contemporary poets who use biblical land, literature, and language, and consider how these poets are theologians whose insights can reshape our reading of the biblical text as preachers. The poems we’ll explore are not for prettying up your preaching; they’re for undoing it. In this workshop we will explore how poetry gives us new ears to hear the Bible’s growling, its desperate breaths, its shouting, its pleading for a different way of living.
