On Knowing Ourself

Posted on 1st mo. 17, 2010 at 12:30am 1 Comment

Yes, I wrote ourself: the grammatical error is deliberate. Tomorrow two facilitators will visit Schuylkill Friends and at rise of meeting will explain the purpose of the survey members and attenders will complete as part of the "Knowing Ourself as a Meeting" process, developed by the Center for Deepening and Strengthening Our Meetings, a ministry of PYM. The use of the singular --ourself-- emphasizes that our meeting is a community with a collective personality. The results of the survey… Continue

Christmas Morning Mass

Dazzled by gold ornaments

by trees swathed in white lights

and the winter sun piercing

stained glass

with its ice-pure rays



Body and soul vibrating

to the organ’s swell

I sang with the choir and congregation



Superlatives and absolutes

flowed from the liturgy

like wine

from a celestial cask



Gloria to God in the highest



Deum de Deo

Lumen de lumine

Deum verum de Deo vero



Wonderful… Continue

Twelve Days Left Till Christmas

So one more enemy leader is dead

killed by a drone

Rejoice! they said

Isaiah wanders the glitzy streets

searching for signs

of the Prince of Peace



Wearied by Macy’s wonderland

he lies down with plush Leo

and soft Gucci lamb



And Mary, her soul extolling the Lord

looks for fulfillment

of his gracious word



Of haughty… Continue

Hi Barbara~
Yes, I truly am just over the bridge into NJ, so the meeting I attend/visit is minutes from me-Buckingham. I like it a lot, but don't get out as much as I'd like and miss it right now. Small meeting, but warm.
Have a great day,
Jan Lyn
