THE SURPRISE CATCH OF THE DAY
When we tie our words together as if making nets large or small, what is it that we hope to catch? What is the power of poetry and story, of naming and metaphor, to catch or to carry that which is beyond words? How do we use the powerful tools of language in matters of faith?
The Rev. Karen Hering serves as consulting literary minister at Unity Church-Unitarian, in St. Paul, Minnesota, offering guided writing sessions and other opportunities for engaging the written word as a spiritual practice and a tool for social action. Her writing has been published in numerous journals and three Skinner House Press meditation anthologies.
Music: Ellen Shahbazi and vocal quartet – Cynthia Stiehl, Peggy Lott, Bob Lindhal, Alan Kopischke – accompanied by Gerri Friedberg
