Through a consideration of his life and poetry (some recorded by the poet himself) we will consider how the priest reconciled his doubts with his vocation of the cure of souls. How did he see his parishioners in the (mostly) rural Welsh parishes in which he served? Please bring along your favourite R S Thomas poem if you wish.
