Topic: Poetry & Readings for the New Year
Do you launch into each new year renewed and inspired? Or does the new year with all its expectations overwhelm you and make you want to crawl into a cocoon until spring?
It’s the inaugural Westwood Poetry Slam! On January 8 you are invited to share a piece of poetry or short prose that expresses your feelings about the new year. It can be classic or contemporary, contemplative or humorous. It can address the topic of the new year directly, or it can deal with universal themes. Maybe you will share some writing you yourself created. If you are shy to read in public, we will find someone to share your poem for you. Westwood poetry lovers will be supplying the content for our January 8 service.
Service Leader: Lorian Kennedy
Musician: Sheila Killoran
Technicians: Hannah, Rebecca Patterson, Bill Lee
Where do you turn for strength, wisdom, comfort, or to be challenged? What inspires you to action or cautions you to re-think your choices? What helps you discern your direction in life? Sustains you in a crisis? Join us for an informal Sunday morning that invites you into reflection and into community.
