Nancy and Gerry will be at the NEXTChurch National Gathering in Kansas City, March 13-15. We'll be leading a workshop on using poetry in congregational life.
Nancy will lead a hands-on poetry writing exercise using scripture related to the Gathering's theme, "Wells and Walls."
Gerry has prepared a short guide to using poetry in several corners of congregational life—stewardship (!), Advent candle lighting, services of lessons and carols, and choral speaking.
More than 30 people are signed up for the Verse and Vision workshop. If you're one of them, we look forward to meeting you in person. It's exciting for us to be among so many Presbyterians who share our love of poetry, liturgy, and spirituality.
Let's start building community now! Please enter a comment below, introducing yourself to other workshop participants and telling them about your poetic/religious interests.
See you in KC!
