Vocation, Poetry, and Prayer: Ways of Knowing
February 06, 2012 Length: 51:49Scott Cairns, renowned poet and visiting professor at St. Katherine College, explores the similarities and differences between art, vocation, and prayer. Drawing from his own experience as a poet, Cairns describes poetry not primarily as a means of expressing oneself or even helping others, but as a way of seeing and an art of producing objects fit for us to behold. Cairns also calls us to think about vocation not primarily as a way we minister to others, but as a way in which God blesses our lives by giving us meaningful work.
" I have found AFR in the past month, and listening to it has greatly uplifted my day, especially at work. I arrive at work two hours before anyone else so I can listen to the programs without interruption."
