April 26, 2022 (Stringfellow’s birthday)
Some events toward nonviolent resistance in the days ahead in which I believe you’ll take interest.
Most immediately, on Thursday April 28, the FOR study of Walter Wink’s The Powers That Be, continues with a dive into chapter’s 7 & 8. It’s led by Wink Fellow, Fernando Ona. You can register HERE. I was interviewed in preparation for this session and that can be viewed at the same site.
I’m looking forward to a poetry conversation with John Dear of the Beatitudes Center. We’ll be reading and commenting on poems of Daniel Berrigan from the new collection, The Trouble With Our State (Cascade). For this you can register HERE. There is a fee for the webinar, but scholarships are available. Don’t let cost prevent you on this one.
“In this special zoom session, John Dear and Bill Wylie-Kellermann will celebrate Daniel Berrigan’s 101st birthday on May 9th, by reading from and commenting on their new collection of Daniel Berrigan’s most political poems called The Trouble with Our State, edited by John Dear with an introduction by Bill Wylie-Kellermann).”
Also related, The Daniel Berrigan Collective will publish next month, their first Berrigan Annual, The Word Made Fresh, with essays, art, poetry, and reviews. (I have an essay on “Priest and Poet: Daniel Berrigan an Ken Feit.” Join the collective. Watch for the publication.
The Poor People’s Campaign is organizing mightily for a June 18 Mass Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly and Moral March on Washington and to the Polls. Here in Michigan as in other states we are organizing to fill buses headed there. You can find nformation here.
Hope to see you in one of these connections.
