As the Veil Thins, with Rev. Beth Frigard
The program will include looking at the Environmental Crisis and its emotional toll, and then taking a look at poetry to see what it may offer us in these unsettling times. By seeing the natural world with our poet’s eye, we are thinning the veil, allowing ourselves the opportunity to see more fully Nature’s gifts to our spiritual and emotional well-being, and to be strengthened and renewed by it.
If time allows, together we will create a collaborative poem.
