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 

Great Heaven.

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.
