About this Event


All our lives are so busy - we have deadlines, and emails, and meetings, and agendas and to-do-lists. How, in the midst of all of these demands, do we manage to make time for the surprising, the unexpected, the things that are quietly calling for our attention: not urgent, but nonetheless important.

Pádraig Ó Tuama is a poet, a theologian, and a Corkman. From 2014-2019 he was leader of the Corrymeela Community, Ireland’s oldest peace and reconciliation community. He has worked with various groups exploring story, conflict, their relationship with religion and argument, and violence. Pádraig is an engaging public speaker and centres his focus around themes of language, power, conflict and religion. His widely published work incorporates poetry (Readings from the Book of Exile; Sorry for your Troubles), prose (In The Shelter) and theology (Daily Prayer, The Place Between).
