Evensong, Wednesday May 13, 2020
They can be like a sun, words.
They can do for the heart
What light can
For a field.
~John of the Cross
Give me a small line of verse from time to time, O God,
And if I cannot write it down for lack of paper or light,
Then let me address it softly in the evening to your
But please give me a small line of verse.
~Etty Hillesum, An Interrupted Life
A Potluck Evensong Gathering
We come together to share offerings which nourish the soul in this Eastertide/Spring Season.
Any who wish, bring along words to share, words that may comfort, illuminate, deepen understanding, words of new life, optimism, hope or lament. Words that sing in our hearts.
It could be a poem, prose, scripture, prayer, lyrics from a favourite song or hymn, or a telling of a story. All offerings are welcome at the table.
Reach out your heart
Reach out your words…
Promise this world your love
For better or worse
In sickness and in health
So long as we all shall live.
~Lynn Ungar Pandemic
Look for your Zoom invitation.
