Grand Illuminations | Good Grief: Grace Born From Subtraction
The Grand Illuminations: Speaking from the Heart lecture series continues with Karen Cherewatuk, Marie Malmin Meyer Professor of English at St. Olaf College. Cherewatuk will present “Good Grief: Grace Born of Subtraction." Her lecture will focus on how suffering and loss, fearful as they are, can also be a kind of saving grace. As she suggests, we can be our best selves on “the other side of sadness.” Using literary texts from John’s Gospel to Derek Walcott’s contemporary epic Omeros, Cherewatuk redefines grief as good.
