The three Marys have been characters upon whom Christianity has long hung archetypes: Virgin, Bossy, Prostitute.
During this urban retreat, Pádraig Ó Tuama will help us explore the stories of these extraordinary women in the texts, in our own lives and in poetry, reckoning with the richness of their characters and reflecting on the need to archetype powerful women characters of the gospel tradition.
Come prepared to read stories in new ways, to blush a little, and to make friendships with new people and with the three Marys.
Over the last 7 years, we’ve collaborated with Pádraig in offering this urban retreat series at Advent in Glasgow’s city centre. This is the now the 8th glorious occasion.
Pádraig Ó Tuama is leader of the Corrymeela Community, as well as being a poet, theologian and peaceworker. Hailing from Cork on the south coast of Ireland, he now lives in Belfast, where he has used elements of faith, poetry, hope and truth-telling for the purpose of helping individuals tell some of their experiences of living through the Irish and other conflict situations in a way that builds curiosity and connections through simple story.
NB Lunch is not included.
