August 25: – “To See The World in a Grain of Sand”
Deborah Weiner, Interim Director of Religious Education, leading worship
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour
So begins William Blake’s poem, “Augeries of Innocence,” one of the most evocative offerings of romantic verse, written in the early part of the nineteenth century. Having spent some of the summer traveling in the Northwest, I’ve had a number of experiences which lift up all that can be seen in miniature, at unexpected moments and even in odd spaces. We’ll explore the ways in which such surprises of the spirit can move us and bring learning, growth, or joy. Child care will be provided and there will be music to enjoy as well.
