Event Description

November 6-7, 2015

To encounter God is to brush against living mystery. To minister is to touch the face of the unknown. To write about faith is to trace the horizon.

Is this theology? Or is it theopoetics?


Join us as we gather with writers that place the adventure of poesis – of making – at the center of their faith, work, and ministry. We’ll hear about a church that meets in an urban garden in California. About a Christian community whose art arises from small-town Michigan. About a prison literary journal and a devotional guide for poets – a devotional guide for everyone, in other words. "More religious writers and spiritual intellectuals are discovering that the Creator God of Genesis is not a moralist but a poet and a potter,” writes Scott Holland, this
year’s keynote speaker and a leading advocate of theopoetics. Where might this Creator God be at work? Come and see, as we ask the question together.
