Apologies to my international readers, but I’m about to post a series of really wonderful events to come along to in Melbourne.
Pádraig Ó Tuama is a delightful Irish poet in Melbourne for three months doing a stint as poet-in-residence for the Uniting Church. I am involved in promoting a couple of public events which promise to be very special. Pádraig is a poet, justice activist and theologian from Belfast. He has a beautiful way of seeing the world, and an even more beautiful way of speaking about it.
I’ve set up a wordpress site as a conduit for a number of his public events that are being organised by various groups around Melbourne, which he is squeezing into an already full program working with various Uniting Church staff and volunteers. Go check it out and get along to whatever you can!
