On Sunday April 7, 2019, as part of the ongoing series on Quaker Mysticism, seven poets from our community read their poems on the theme of "Poetry and Mysticism." Here are some comments from members who attended the reading. "Dear Poets, Thank you all so much for the session yesterday! It was special to hear the many voices and to celebrate together such creative people in our community. I was moved. Speaking only for myself, I find poetry to be deeply integrative, bringing together heart, head, mind and soul in a singing manner. I felt that integration and music yesterday." And another, "What an enriching experience it was, sharing all (y)our passions in the form of poetry."
