    On Saturday afternoon, July 30th between 2:30 and 4:30 pm at PYM Annual Sessions.

    Come and expand your concept of worship, to explore how language inspires us, unites us, and moves us. Friends are invited to bring a favorite poem to share, either one you have written or someone else has written, or a poem that arrises in the moment. Friends will be encouraged to leave space between readings of poems in order for spirit to move amongst us.

    For ages 5 and older; children and middle schoolers need to be accompanied by their adult.

    For more information, contact Lola Georg

    We had a great time with Meeting for Worship with Attention to Poetry and a new poem was born! Poems ranged from familiars by Mary Oliver, David Whyte, and Walt Whitman, with some Shel Silverstein sprinkled in. Some friends shared their own poems, which were wonderful. I would love to hear feedback from others who attended. Should we try this again?
