Event: Theo-logy to Theopoetics: Ministry of Writing course with Scott Holland
Place: Earlham School of Religion
The postmodern condition may, for good reasons, be characterized by incredulity toward churchly morality and God-talk. Nevertheless, there is an emerging spirituality marked by intellectual curiosity and aesthetic desire that celebrates poem over proposition, metaphor over moral. This workshop will explore the possibilities of naming oneself and rending God’s name through a writing life informed more by theopoetics than theology.
Scott Holland is Assistant Professor of Peace Studies and Cross-Cultural Studies and Director of Campus Ministry at Bethany Theological Seminary. He is also a contributing editor to Cross Currents: The Journal for the Association of Religion and Intellectual Life.
