Celebrating a Summer of Poetry and Faith

     “Poetry is frosted fire,” declared J. Patrick Lewis, the U.S. Children’s Poet Laureate, who, by “celebrating the love of language,” seeks to “start fires in the minds of children.” 

     The worship of the United Church of Christ of La Mesa (UCCLM), has a similar goal – stoking the fire of faith.   This summer (July 17 through September 3), both our 11:00am traditional and 9:00am contemporary services will feature poetry, employing the richness of  its language to complement scripture, music and message and create a worship experience in which, in Terri Guillemets’ words, “…your prayer can be poetry; poetry, your prayer.”

     All are welcome!  Come as you are – casual is great! – to either service (and the shared Friendship Hour between them).  The church is located at 5940 Kelton Avenue, La Mesa, CA 91942 (619-464-1519, www.ucclm.org).
