IN PRAISE OF THE GOD OF DIRT
What’s eternity? Can we experience it in the “here and now” of this life? How? Where? Why does life include both joy and pain? These are tough questions! To wrestle with these, we need to use our imaginations. Poetry and music are wonderful tools for igniting the imagination as we ponder great questions. So we’ll ponder these questions with the assistance of a poem by Mary Oliver that has been beautifully set to music. Cynthia Stiehl accompanied by Dan Van Sickle will perform the piece.
