When Poets Wonder

Join us for Online or In-Person Worship Service

Through too much of human history, the sacred and the mundane have been seen as separate from each other. The art of reading and writing poetry breaks down this artificial barrier and invites us into a world where even the smallest things are significant and the most ineffable are momentarily graspable. Learn the poet’s particular practice of wonder as a path home to ourselves and our place in the unfolding universe.

Our December Donate the Plate will be on this Sunday to benefit Project Angel Heart.

Project Angel Heart prepares and delivers meals for people living with severe illnesses. Our meals are made from scratch and tailored to meet each person’s unique nutritional and medical needs. Better nutrition means improved health and lower medical costs for people living with cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, HIV/AIDS, kidney disease, and other illnesses. We offer five specialty diets, as well as additional modifications for people with specific food dexterity needs, religious preferences, dietary intolerances, and other unique needs. With the help of volunteers, we deliver meals along the I-25 corridor, from Pueblo to Weld counties and into Douglas and Boulder counties, and we continue to expand. We also ship meals to rural Coloradans eligible to receive meals with a healthcare partner contract.
