If you love the the Contemporary Voice portion of our worship service, subscribe to poetry or inspirational quotes postings, gather this Sunday for a Plymouth Library Committee all-ages event on the theme of poetry. The timing of this event couldn’t be better, as it’s on the eve of April, which is National Poetry Month!
Had I the heaven’s embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
Plymouth Library offers a wealth of excellent poetry on themes ranging from faith to social justice to the joys, humor and challenges of everyday life. Gather in small groups with other Plymouth folks, read out loud and reflect together on selected poems from our library. There will be a special circle for children and their parents/caregivers to read poems for youth with fabulous illustrations. Hear from several in our congregation who have been chosen to read a few poems out loud to the entire group.
Our intergenerational Library events provide meaningful faith formation opportunities and a time for Plymouth folks to mix and make new friends. Please join us 11:45 am Sunday, March 31, in Hildebrand Hall for Poetry!
