The Contemplative Poetics of Faith Deconstruction
Presented by Paul Swanson

Tuesday, November 14, 2023
10:00am – 12:00pm


The unfolding path of faith is risky and unpredictable in its evolutions throughout life. At times faith can feel linear, clear, and light, only to lose its shine in the wreckage of unforeseen circumstances. Some outgrow the shell of their consummate sense of faith and feel a drizzle of hope call them onward and into the unknown. The complexity of faith is experienced across discovery, loss, stability, and mystery. In this workshop we will honor the poetic totality of faith experiences through opportunities to engage in contemplative practices, musings, storytelling, and personal reflection.

Paul Swanson is a graduate of North Park University (B.A.) and Creighton University (M.A.) where he studied scripture, theology, and spirituality. He works with Richard Rohr at the Center for Action and Contemplation, and is a jackleg Mennonite, a member of Our Lady of the Tall Trees. Paul and his wife Laura have two feral, but beloved, children. Learn more about Paul’s work kindling the examined life for contemplatives in the world at contemplify.com.
