Hello. I’m Lucy Berry.
I am a performance poet – working with our changing ideas and beliefs about God, Faiths, Scriptures, Call and Mission. I write and read my poems at all kinds and sizes of faith-related events.
I was brought up and trained in the Christian tradition; but being a thinking person of faith nowadays, (in any context, anywhere in the world), requires us to learn how to engage and honour difference in people, and in their godly beliefs and behaviours.
Sadly, our fierce love of the reassurance we find in our own traditions often leads us to suspect and exclude each other.
As a woman who grew up with the command “Love one another” ringing in her ears, I know there there are no exclusion clauses.
Let’s think together.
