Peace (& Poetry) Be Upon You

10:30 am, Live streamed from the Parish Hall

Rev. Catie Scudera leading


At the start of both National Poetry Month and the holy time of Ramadan, we will celebrate the long and inspiring history of Islamic poets. We’ll hear from better-known Muslim poets, like Jalah ad-Din Rumi and Naomi Shihab Nye, as well as less well-known Muslim poets, like ​​Rabiʿa al-ʿAdawiyya al-Qaysiyya. Through this service of poetry, we reflect on spiritual wisdom from Islam.

After our Sunday morning livestream service, you’re invited to our Virtual Social Hour on Zoom, starting at 11:30am, or as soon as the Sunday service ends.
