Solas 2010: art, faith and justice

IMG_9428_field&cows-wiston_b&w

A superb weekend at the first Solas festival this weekend. Solas ‘aims to celebrate, explore and develop connections between art, faith and justice within and beyond Scotland’

Excellent music, stimulating talks, great conversations, beautiful location, amazing weather.  Much food for thought too, and I will share more on this.

For today, here is a poem shared by one of the speakers.

The Place Where We Are Rightby Yehuda Amichai

From the place where we are right
Flowers will never grow
In the spring.

The place where we are right
Is hard and trampled
Like a yard.

But doubts and loves
Dig up the world
Like a mole, a plow.
And a whisper will be heard in the place
Where the ruined
House once stood.
