The Importance of Paradox: Poetry, Prayer, & the Life of Simon Peter
by Sarah Chestnut
Feb 5, 2021
Paradox is central to Christian theology and experience. Francis Schaeffer, employing a paradox, described humans as glorious ruins. We will look to poetry to tutor us in the nature and gifts of paradox, reflect on what are often paradoxical experiences of praying, and with the help of poems, imaginatively enter gospel passages involving Simon Peter ("Rock" and "stumbling stone"!) to better equip us to navigate our complex world.
