Show Notes

Abigail Carroll serves as pastor of the arts and spiritual formation at Church of the Well in Burlington, Vermont. She holds a PhD in American Studies from Boston University, and she is an accomplished poet whose third collection of poems, Cup My Days Like Water, a set of meditations on the Psalms, was published just last year, 2023. We talk about these new poems, particularly the connections between poetry, stillness, prayer, and what it means to seek and follow inspiration in one’s life and work.
