Enthusiasm, Entropy and Ecology: A New Look at the Psalms

October 27, 2018 - November 1, 2018

The poetry of the Psalms, which has fascinated people for three millennia, is totally diverse in emotional range, spiritual depth and subject matter. It can be argued that one poem is the source document for original sin, while another suggests that nature is engaging in a cosmic symphony without any need for human direction.

It is to the diversity of material and to rare species rather than fond favourites that the retreat will be concerned. That will involve some singing, some listening, some silence and not too much entropy (a term which among other things means “a lack of pattern or organisation”).
