It is in the shelter of each other that the people live. Drawing on
this Irish saying, poet, storyteller and theologian Padraig O Tuama
relates ideas of shelter and welcome to journeys of life, using
poetry, story, biblical refelction and prose to open up gentle ways
of living well in a troubled world. The fourth gospel tells of
Jesus arriving in the room where the disciples are gathered, full
of fear, on Easter Sunday. He does not chide or admonish; instead
he says 'Peace be with you', which, in the Aramaic of his day, was
simply a greeting. To people locked in a room of fear he said
'Hello,' welcoming them to a place of deep encounter: encounter
with themselves, with their fear, with each other and with the
incarnate one in their midst. Interweaving everyday stories with
narrative theology, gospel reflections with mindfulness and Celtic
spirituality with poetry, In the Shelter reveals the
transformational power of welcome.
