George Herbert as a Mystic

Presented by Special Guest Speaker, The Rev. Dr. Euan Cameron  priest and professor at Union Theological Seminary

George Herbert (1593-1633) was a thoughtful, reflective, devout priest in an angry and conflicted time in the history of the Church of England. In his poetry, daringly experimental in its forms and remarkably candid in its spirituality, he laid bare both the joy and the trials of his Christian witness. In his Priest to the Temple he set out an almost unattainably perfect vision of the parish priest’s calling. This talk will try to place the two parts of his legacy in relation both to each other and to the time in which Herbert lived.

Martyrs, Mystics, & Saints is an exploration of the lives, work, and deaths of specific Christians whose exemplary devotion to the Gospel of Jesus Christ continually inspires us today as followers of Jesus on our journey into the heart of God.

This series runs on Mondays at 7:00 pm from February 4 through May 20. There is no class on February 18, April 15, or April 22.
