Reflections on A Morning with Pádraig Ó Tuama

“Generosity is its own kind of revolution.”

Pádraig Ó Tuama

On February 27, 2021, fifty people from various parts of the world came together online to engage with the Irish poet and theologian, Pádraig Ó Tuama, as he lead us in considering ideas about Creativity, Generosity, Forgiveness and Justice.

Using four poems*, Pádraig discussed themes of generous listening, making time for creativity, kindness to self, truth telling, and human flourishing. He urged us to have a clear-eyed view of creativity and the world, to forgo sentimentality, resist complicity, and to lead with generosity.
