Women of Wit and Wisdom will gather in Old Buttonwood Hall for an evening that will explore poetry as a carrier of spiritual wisdom.
Joy Harjo, our first Native American poet laureate, calls poetry “soul talk.” Poems can connect us to the earth, to the world of the Spirit, and to each other. Poems can carry our dreams and help us reimagine ourselves, create community, and change the world.
Barbara Chaapel will lead us in exploring the wisdom within poetry, looking at poems by Joy Harjo, Mary Oliver, Emily Dickinson, Alice Walker, Toni Morrison, Walt Whitman, Pablo Neruda, David Whyte, John Donne, and others—and through the poems we will look at ourselves.
All women of the church and their guests are warmly invited to this evening of wine, women, and poetry—and community! RSVP by October 14 to Diane Rogers. Parking and child care will be available. Please bring an hors-d'oeuvre to share. We look forward to seeing you!
