Thursday evenings at First Presbyterian
We will meet for meditation on all Thursdays in September and October from 7:00 – 8:00 pm in the fellowship hall. Our format is two 20-minute periods of sitting in silence with a 10 minute walking meditation in between. Afterwards there is a brief time for announcements and sharing prayer concerns.
September Retreat Day
Saturday September 30, 2017
9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Poetry in all its beauty and truth has the potential to open our hearts to the mysteries of life and the wondrous workings of the Spirit in our lives. It can deepen our appreciation of the simple but profound truths that are found in our experience. We can soar with the poets who fling themselves into the heart of things. Join us for a morning of meditation and sharing from a selection of poems from the book The Wilds of Poetry by David Hinton.
Coffee, tea, and refreshments will be provided.
A freewill offering will be available.

You cannot stay on the summit forever;
You have to come down again . . .
So why bother in the first place?
What is above knows what is below,
what is below does not know what is above.
One sees no longer,
but one has seen.
There is an art of conducting oneself
In the lower regions by the memory of
what one saw higher up.
When one can no longer see,
One can at least still know . . .
