This Sunday's Service
April 27, 10:30 AM - In Memory of Adrienne Rich and her Contributions to our sexual identity. - Sue Beckham and Steelie Newomon officiating. Adrienne Rich was "one of the most widely read and influential poets of the second half of the 20th century"1. She wrote during most of the century as political activist, woman, feminist; her writing is credited as the most important source for bringing "the oppression of women and lesbians to the forefront of poetic discourse" 2. This celebration/service will include testimonies and readings from her poetry by several women of the congregation, some You Tube productions based on her life and poetry, solo music by BB Brown and an opportunity for brief contributions from the audience. 1Nelson, Cary. editor, Anthology of Modern American Poetry; Oxford University Press, 2000. 2The Guardian, March 29, 2012.
