Jazz, Poetry, Special Event
Join us for an evening of jazz followed by an open mic poetry reading. Dr. Mark S. Burrows will be the featured poet. "As an historian of Christian Spirituality, my research and writing have focused on those creative minds among the mystics, visionaries, and poets who often found themselves living and working at the margins of Christianity. Theirs was an adventurous and daring exploration of spirit, a journey both inward and outward that offers radical insights into the nature of love, the quest for the sacred, the boundlessness of human experience, and alternate voicings of tradition and experience. Alongside this work, I frequently lecture and offer workshops and retreats.
My poems and translations of poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Poetry, Southern Quarterly, The Cortland Review, Eremus, Christian Century, 91st Meridian, Seminary Ridge Review, The Anglican Theological Review, and Almost Island, among others. A volume of my recent poems, The Chance of Home, was published in 2018."
