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.
During the pandemic, these evenings take place on Zoom. The January meeting is tonight, January 13th, at 7:00 p.m. Click through and you will find the link with the information on how to join.
“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!”
