Rev. Mary Grigolia“Summer Poetry Reflections, or, Need More Rumi?”

I invite you to join me for three poetry reflections as Sunday morning services: July 10, July 24 and August 14, reflecting on: Who we are (as individuals, as a spiritual community, as a religious movement) to the Mystery, to each other? How does Life speak (or dance or hold presence) through us? On July 10, bring a favorite poem from Rumi. On July 24, a short reading from Mary Oliver. On Aug 14, a favorite piece from a different poet (perhaps yourself).

“Opening the Windows”

There are three questions: 1) What are your plans for the summer? 2) What do you need? 3) What do you yearn for? 

For me, professionally, July is planning month. It’s also the Republican National Convention, with media exacerbating volatile cultural polarization. It’s hard not to be controlled by sensationalism shaping our shared future. What do I need? To resist the tendency to answer only that first question, losing myself in readings, videos, theories. While what I need is to go deeper. To plug into life’s yearning,  which is already and always right here: Daring me (and you) to enjoy the perfect afternoon, the colors of the sunrise, the sound of children laughing, the taste of morning coffee, the body yearning to sit and move aligned, energized. I invite you to join me in inverting those three questions. First, opening the windows of mind, heart and body, listening for what we yearn for, revealing what we need, what Life needs from us and through us, and letting the planning follow from there. As Rumi said, “Let the beauty we love be what we do.”
