The word Easter is derived from Eostre, the name of a goddess whose festival was held at the vernal equinox, although it is now better known as a festival that celebrates the resurrection of Christ, or The Passover, or a time to give gifts of eggs to our friends and families. What better way to celebrate the diverse meanings of this day than in original poetry by members and friends of this Fellowship! From memories of Easters long ago and far away to current images, in voices that range from joyful to ironic, serious to playful, our poets will seek to awaken a fresh response to this holiday.
Participating poets include Sharon Auberle. David Clowers, Hanne Gault, Phil Hansotia, Cynthia Johnson, Poet Laureate Barbara Larsen , Estella Lauter, Nancy Rafal, Jack Redell, and Henry Timm.
Music: Gerri Friedberg
Service Leader: Estella Lauter
After the service, we will celebrate the publication of the third volume of poems from the Dickinson Poetry Series 2011-2012 in honor of Poetry Month.
