The Purpose & Practice of Praise

Wed, October 16, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The practice of “praise” is a constant throughout the moral literature of the world. The purpose of “praise,” especially out of the Celtic tradition, has been “to recreate an unblemished world.” The artist/poet David Jones declares, “If poetry is praise, as prayer is, it can never coexist with a malignant and persistent criticism of the nature of things.” With this seeming constant in our world today, an evening of “praise” might seem in order. The Rev’d. Cn. John Rice invites you to come and share some favorite poems, psalms, or songs from your tradition. Together, perhaps we can buff away some of the blemishes of the day.

Free of Charge. Please call (212) 289-0399 or reserve online.
