George Herbert—17th century priest, poet, and courtier—wrote devotional poetry which was at once personally authentic, theologically profound, and extraordinarily beautiful. His poems work both as individual lyric pieces and as starting points for personal and group contemplation. In this Advent Quiet Day, the House of the Redeemer’s December priest-in-residence Gary Hall will lead retreatants through a series of reflections on several of Herbert’s best-known (and a few less famous) poems in a mixture of lecture, individual contemplation, and group discussion. The day will also include time for prayer, being sure to incorporate some of Herbert’s texts along the way.
Space is limited. Reservations are required. Tickets: $30. Lunch is included.
