July 8 Annual Poetry Service: Resilience

This service will feature several members of the congregation reading poems of their choosing (written by them or another author), related to the overall theme of “Resilience.”

RESILIENCE: Latin, resilīre – to spring back, rebound

1)  the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties or adversity; toughness; buoyancy

2)  the power or ability to return to an original form or position, after being bent, compressed, or stretched; elasticity.

If you are interested in reading a short poem related to the theme of “Resilience,” and also briefly speaking about why that poem is meaningful to you, please contact Lisa Reitzes at lisa.reitzes@seattlechildrens.org  no later than June 25.   Selections will be chosen to fit the structure and time frame of the service.
