The poetry of lent: Study group
Wednesdays 10:30am + 7pm

The best poems help us notice the world, attuning our eyes and ears to wonders we might otherwise overlook, and inspiring us to share what we find. In this Lenten devotional, biblical texts and Mary Oliver’s poems illumine each other, pointing toward simple, powerful practices of attention, astonishment and testimony.
