Course Experiment: Writing To and About God

Proposal: A free Wednesday night writing class at my church called “Writing To and About God”

Motto: Find the right words to talk to and about God.

Reading: A shortlist of excerpts from writers new and old writing to and about God in poetry and prose: St. Augustine, Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich, George Herbert, Emily Dickinson, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Martin Luther King, Jr.

Writing: Two pieces…one prayer (a direct conversation to God) and one testimony (a narrative about the writer’s relationship with God)
