November 29th at 8:00 pm- Cathedral of All Saints
Poetry invokes a presence, whether it be of apples, a day above the ruins of an abbey, or God. This course will use Gerard Manley Hopkins’ “That Nature is a Heraclitean Fire and of the Comfort of the Resurrection” as a jumping off point for discerning the presence of God. We will read this poem closely, and then turn to a more contemporary poem where the same themes are expressed, albeit with a modern lens. We will end with a consideration of how poetry can help us discern the presence of God in all beings.
December 10th at 3:30 pm - Freedom Square
Join us in a celebration of light and community. Around an evergreen tree, we will light candles, tie the names of loved ones on branches, and share our light to set intentions for love, justice and peace. Before the tree lighting there will be warm beverages, snacks, arts and crafts, and a radio-making station. Bring your wishes for light, justice and peace, as we reflect on current times and come together with sacred intention, embracing all religions and beliefs.
