Sorry For Your Troubles
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references. Summary One of the most engaging voices contemporary spirituality in is that of the Irish poet, Padraig O'Tuama. This second poetry collection arises out of a decade of his hearing stories of people who have lived through personal and political conflict in Northern Ireland, the Middle East and other places of conflict. These poems tell stories of individuals who have lived through conflict: their loves and losses, their hope and generosity. One poem, 'Shaking hands' was written when Padraig witnessed the historic handshake between Queen Elizabeth II and Martin McGuinness, who has since used the poem publicly.
The phrase 'Sorry for your troubles' is used all over Ireland.
Sorry for your troubles
At the end. Yes, to bring 30 years of conflict and murder and separation to some kind of robust framework for moving forward into a better peace and a better living together. It needs careful questioning. And it needs a way within which we can speak about these things, recognizing that words have impact. And often, if people use unwise words, they return to their intention. And we hear that at Corrymeela all the time.
It causes people maybe to close their doors, to feel a little bit more worried.
And when you begin to feel that, you begin to look for it. And that can cause a real limitation in a life.
And that fails us. That really does fail us. Tippett: Do you want to read a poem along those lines? Something come to mind? One of the complications of here is, do you call it Northern Ireland or the North of Ireland? Tippett: I want to keep going on this work, of this wisdom you have, and actually, this wisdom this place has, about understanding who we are to each other and how we are to each other. I mean, Ireland voting to…. Tippett: The Republic of Ireland voting to legalize same sex marriage — this Catholic country, before it happened in the United States, I believe.
It was more than just feeling. It was the truth. And you talked about this Christian community that you were part of for many years where you felt deeply loved. Was that the same one that also made you undergo exorcisms? And reparative therapy too. I was 19 and frightened and thought this might help and was told this is the kind of thing that will help. That was the awful thing. And I was trying to put that into language. In terms of a conjugation of a verb into a sentence, that fails. And I had been through three exorcisms in the year previous to that and had gone to this — I used to get the number 16 bus from the north side to the south side of Dublin, petrified, and leave burdened, like with a damp blanket of dismay on me.
And that was the exorcism. It was amazing. I remember getting back on the number 16 bus elated with delight, and I had no one to tell, because to tell anybody about this exorcism into freedom would have been to have caused complication in terms of that. But I am bored often by ways in which it can turn into something where I have received insult, where I then give insult back.
And here in Ireland and Scotland and the States and Australia and England — as well as in Uganda — where people who believe very deeply that their faith and their social conscience causes them to be concerned, that there is the possibility within the Gospels for us to be brought into a deeper kind of belonging with each other. So, in Uganda, we looked at this text of the woman in Luke chapter 7 who makes her way into the house of Simon the Pharisee. And she was not welcome, but she actually did the duties of the host. And then in Greek, it says he turned to her and spoke to Simon, who would have been the host.
His head was now to the host, turning to this woman. And what do you see? Once, in one of these encounters, there was an amazing situation where about 9 or 10 of us in a room, people who had chosen to come and to — they came from fairly — with deep caution about lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans people.
How many times have my words bruised you? He was the one who chaplained himself into that space. We were un-residential, and curiously, we were talking a few nights previously about television, and he was saying that his absolute favorite show was this political show on the BBC on a Thursday night.
Corrymeela is a place, is the creation of a place where people whose lives were threatened during the Troubles literally fled here, physically, to be safe. This question of getting the right people in the room — how would you start to give some counsel on that from what you know? These concepts, like civic society, exist in people, next to people, next to people, next to people. You can have a really robust disagreement. And that is the opposite of being frightened of fear because you can create that. Hill of harmony. Tippett: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
I should have paid attention to that. This question fails us, never mind subsequent answers. And asking a wiser question might unfold us into asking even more wiser questions, whereas certain kinds of questions just entrench fear. We used to do prayer reflections with year-old, West Belfast, hilarious young people. She was one of my favorites. She was amazing at football, and she just said everything that she thought. Because she, in that little half-comedic, half-frightening incident, is telling a story of an entire society.
This is , so this was 13 years after the Good Friday Agreement had been signed. And nonetheless, these are ways in which these stories — and you mentioned sectarianism earlier on, and one of the best definitions of sectarianism comes from a book by Cecelia Clegg and Joe Liechty, and they say, sectarianism is belonging gone bad. Agreement has rarely been the mandate for people who love each other.
You can find that with each other, even when you think different things about what jurisdiction we are or should be in. That is soft and kind language, but it is so robust. It is part of the firmament that upholds what it means to be human.

I have it — or you have it. Tippett: OK.

There, I greet God in my own disorder. I say hello to my chaos, my unmade decisions, my unmade bed, my desire and my trouble. I say hello to distraction and privilege, I greet the day and I greet my beloved and bewildering Jesus. I recognise and greet my burdens, my luck, my controlled and uncontrollable story.
I greet my untold stories, my unfolding story, my unloved body, my own love, my own body. I greet the things I think will happen and I say hello to everything I do not know about the day. I greet my own small world and I hope that I can meet the bigger world that day. I greet my story and hope that I can forget my story during the day, and hope that I can hear some stories, and greet some surprising stories during the long day ahead.
And I was prepared for him to — I was prepared with great modesty to receive a compliment in that situation. Tippett: Yeah.
