Reflecting through Poetry
Led by Ian Miller
Mondays, 7:00PM, Astoria
Open to All

 

“Poets tell us what our eyes, blurred with too much gawking, and our ears, dulled with too much chatter, miss around and within us. Poets use words to drag us into the depth of reality itself.” – Eugene Peterson
 
Each week in this group, we’ll gather together to read selections of poetry, both from scripture and inspired by scriptural themes. We’ll use the poems we read as a basis for reflection and conversation. No experience of any sort necessary — just a desire to read and connect!
