In the Shelter: Finding a Home in the World by Pádraig Ó Tuama

Feb 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

In the Shelter: Finding a Home in the World by Pádraig Ó Tuama

There’s an old Irish proverb: ‘It is in the shelter of each other that the people live’. In this book much-loved poet, storyteller, theologian and speaker Pádraig Ó Tuama applies ideas of shelter and welcome to journeys of life, using poetry, story, biblical reflection and prose to open up gentle ways of living well in a troubled world.

Interweaving everyday stories with analysis, gospel reflections with mindfulness and Celtic spirituality with poetry, this book explores the practice of welcoming as a spiritual discipline. In particular, Pádraig tells careful stories of welcoming parts of life that are often unwelcome.
