On January 11thRandy Robertson from GladdeningLight spoke to the Nu Class about Barbara Brown Taylor’s book, An Altar in the World as well as this year’s symposium which included three days of inspired lectures, art, music & conversation with:

Barbara Brown Taylor
New York Times bestselling author of Leaving Church, An Altar in the World and Learning to Walk in the Dark (HarperOne).  Taylor, a religion professor at Piedmont College, was the subject of a recent Time cover story and featured as one of 2014’s 100 most influential people.

“Taylor is reviving an ancient idea the mystics of the Middle Ages understood: darkness holds divine mystery. (Time)”

Taylor “has learned to prize holy ignorance more highly than religious certainty,’ and because she writes so enchantingly out of her own deep truth, she helps us get back in touch with ours.”  (Frederick Buechner)

Tobi Kahn
Sculptor and painter who has been the subject of over sixty solo exhibitions worldwide since selected as one of nine artists to be included in the 1985 Guggenheim Museum exhibition, New Horizons in American Art.

Owen and Moley Ó Súilleabháin
Brothers from Western Ireland who harmonize a cappella ancient canticles and Gaelic sean nos traditional folk hymns
