The Three Marys in The Gospel Tradition, Glasgow

24 - 25 Nov 2017
The Ground, Iona Community, 21 Carlton Court, Glasgow, G5 9JP

3marysLooking at the gospel stories through the stories of three women: Mary of Bethany, Mary of Nazareth, Mary of Magdala

The three Marys have been characters upon whom Christianity has long hung archetypes: Virgin, Bossy, Prostitute.

During this urban retreat, Pádraig Ó Tuama (Leader of the Corrymeela Community) will explore the stories of these extraordinary women in the texts, in our own lives and in poetry, reckoning with the richness of their characters and reflecting on the need to archetype powerful women characters of the gospel tradition.

Come prepared to read stories in new ways, to blush a little, and to make friendships with new people and with the three Marys.
