Mark Pryce, priest and poet, reminds us that Oscar Wilde called Jesus a poet. Mark also says that Jesus had a poetic spirit that troubled and tickled the imagination.

Robert Graves described poets as “Ambassadors of Other-where”.  Should this not also be a description of priests too? Our task is to help sculpt spaces where the other-where of God can be known and encountered and human imagination be troubled and tickled.
