Sunday 18th February
15:00 - 16:00
Description:Choral Evensong is held in the Quire of Wells Cathedral and is sung by Wells Cathedral Choir during term time. 2018 marks the centenary of the end of World War One, a conflict that shaped the century to come in terms of theology, social practice and world politics. We have asked a series of preachers to explore some of these themes in addresses at Sunday Evensong during Lent, with tea and a seminar to follow each Sunday.Today's address will explore 'Poetry and the Collapse of a Culture'. The Revd Canon Rachel Mann, Canon Poet, Manchester Cathedral: Rachel’s recent book ‘Fierce Imaginings’ ranges over the collapse of a culture as witnessed by the poets, soldiers and victims of the Great War. The book has been judged outstanding, and Rachel will offer rich poetry from the period. All are welcome!
