Event description
On the feast day of Richard Hooker, poet-priest Malcolm Guite will engage us in a spiritual journey with the poetry of George Herbert.

About this Event

Malcolm Guite published After Prayer, his poetic response to George Herbert’s poem Prayer in October 2019. Malcolm has a particular interest in the imagination as a truth-bearing faculty and continues to reflect deeply on how poetry can stimulate and re-awaken our prayer life.

The day will run from 10 am to 4 pm on Zoom with plenty of regular breaks from the screen for reflection. There will be the option of Prayer Book Evening Prayer at 4 pm.

The day is hosted by the Craighead Institute of Life and Faith in Glasgow in partnership with St Bride’s Episcopal Church, Hyndland, Glasgow.

Malcolm Guite recently retired as Chaplain and is Supernumerary Fellow of Girton College, Cambridge, and teaches at the Faculty of Divinity at the University of Cambridge. He lectures widely in England and North America on Theology and Literature and has published poetry, theology, and literary criticism and has worked as a librettist. His books include: Love, Remember (November 2017); Mariner, a spiritual biography of Samuel Taylor Coleridge (February 2017, paperback edition February 2018); Parable and Paradox (2016); The Singing Bowl (2013); Sounding the Seasons (2012); Theology and the Poetic Imagination (2010) and Faith Hope and Poetry (2006). Malcolm has edited two poetry anthologies for Lent and Advent: The Word in the Wilderness (2014) and Waiting on the Word (2015). Malcolm writes Poet’s Corner, a weekly column in the Church Times and an anthology of his column’s writings, In Every Corner Sing, was published in November 2019. Malcolm enjoys sailing, walking, old books, live music, riding his Harley Davidson motorbike and all the varieties of the British countryside and weather.
