First United Presbyterian Church Fayetteville has a tradition of small groups as well as the meetings of the whole congregation. One of these groups is Poetic Conversations. This is a monthly meeting to share poetry through the spoken word.
“I experience these as refreshing,” says Pastor Jan Butin. “We meet monthly on Zoom on the second Thursday from 7-8 pm. A couple of people who attend are published poets and others of us write for fun or have favorite poems/poets. For Poetic Conversations, you can bring one or two poems on any topic you choose. (Or you can just listen as others read.) Some poems we read are spiritual; some are humorous; some are traditional favorites; some are original writing. They can be anything at all. We wanted to make sure everyone knows that this group exists. Come and enjoy!”
