Common Good Podcast

Peacemaking and Poetry with Pádraig Ó Tuama

June 1, 2022

Doug Pagitt and Dan Deitrich sit down with Irish poet and theologian Pádraig Ó Tuama to talk about the power of story, who gets to tell what stories, and how The Troubles taught him to look at history through the lens of those not in power.

Pádraig Ó Tuama is a theologian, writer, and conflict transformation practitioner. He is a member and former leader of the Corrymeela Community of Northern Ireland. His books include a memoir, In the Shelter: Finding a Home in the World; a prayer book, Daily Prayer with the Corrymeela Community; a book of poetry, Sorry For Your Troubles; and a book of theology and politics co-authored with Glenn Jordan, Borders & Belonging. He hosts the On Being Studios podcast Poetry Unbound. His forthcoming book, Poetry Unbound: 50 Poems to Open Your World, will be published in October 2022 and is available for pre-order wherever you get your books.
