In these days of continual updates and news, I hope and pray you are still reading poetry and praying.  God’s love endures and we hold on to resurrection hope.  If you are so inclined, join me in the comfort and safety of your home through Zoom.  If e-meetings are not appealing, I completely understand.

Hope you are all safe and well.

Come experience a deeper connection with God, yourself, and others by joining us on a 40-day journey through Lent by exploring wisdom of the poets.  Below is a link to curated collection of poetry authored by writers living in the third century to the contemporary era.  Their insight to faith and Jesus’ life is organized to take us each day from “Mystery and Love” to facing “The Stumbling Block,” reflect on “Conversion” and invite us to “Practice Resurrection.”  Edited by Daniel B. Clendenin, these poems will appeal to novice readers and delight those long steeped in this literary form.  Available as an electronic guide to download a version for your preferred device.

Katie Lancaster has written a companion prayer for each day’s poem and is also available through an email, social media, and our website.

You are also invited to join Jo Forrest during Lent to talk about your experiences and ideas over a ‘cuppa in a casual setting.  Below is a schedule inviting you to drop in as convenient:

  • Wednesdays, March 4, 11, 18, 25, April 1, and 8 at 8 a.m. in Jo Forrest’s online.
