R. S. Thomas was a priest/poet in the five hundred year Anglican tradition that has famously included John Donne, George Herbert, Charles Wesley, Thomas Ken and many others.  Thomas' priesthood was spent in rural parishes, but the poetry he wrote won him national awards and international acclaim.  

This event celebrates the centenary of his birth by placing him in a wider literary and spiritual context.  Thomas was a man of deep contradictions; he writes powerfully of the Welsh people and landscape and also of God, accepting both belief and doubt and experiencing God's presence and absence as part of the life of faith.  

Keynote speaker will be John G. McEllhenney, author of A Masterwork of Doubting Belief: R. S. Thomas and His Poetry (Wipf and Stock, 2013).  The event will conclude with Evensong (open to all) in All Saints Episcopal Church, 16 All Saints Road, Princeton, N. J., which will feature the world premiere of "Anthem for St. David of Wales" by Welsh composer Paul Mealor (with text by Gordon Graham).  

This event is supported in part by a generous grant from the St. Martin's House fund.  Cost is $15 (includes lunch); full-time students: free.  Saturday, 21 September 2013, Noon - 5:15 pm.
