Dialogue inspired by Poetry in Stellenbosch
February 23, 2018 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am
[NB: Please use the entrance on Ryneveld Street.]
Life in South Africa confronts us with issues that are not always easy to process. They make us uncomfortable and challenge us. However, is it exactly in these places of dissonance that growth and healing can happen.
Vera Marbach will facilitate a “dialogue inspired by poetry” through a process of reflection and sense-making as we connect with each other across some of the issues that frequently divide us. She will present some poetry from her recently published “Dwelling in Dissonance” as an entry point to a heart-to-heart discussion.
Vera is a facilitator, entrepreneur and L’Abri worker; she writes poetry to help her process the dissonance she observes and experiences. Resident in Gauteng, Vera is in Stellenbosch for a series of events to mark the launch of L’Abri SA. L’Abri is an international community that offers safe spaces in which questions are taken seriously and Biblical answers to life’s complexities are explored.
