world central kitchen fundraiser

Edwards Church, Plymouth Church, Open Spirit and more local communities are hosting a big, buffet dinner to benefit World Central Kitchen (WCK) on June 15.

 

WCK goes to disaster areas around the world like Haiti and Gaza where they team with local chefs to bring local dishes and hope to those suffering.

 

We are seeking event sponsors, and we need lots of volunteers to cook, decorate, set up, and clean-up. A successful event will inspire more social justice work.

 

Please contact Heather (hgcolibri@gmail.com) if you can help in any way.

 

Thank you! There is no charge for the event; we hope you will contribute as you are able to support World Central Kitchen.

 

Here's a link to sign up!

Spirituality & Poetry;  Grounded in Awe
Monthly Poetry writing Workshop

What stirs in us when we reach for a poem, whether sitting down to write or read the work of a favorite poet? Why do poems stay with us and continue to inform our lives?

 

In this workshop, we’ll approach poetry as a vehicle for living more fully in the present and deepening our humanity. Each month we’ll focus on an element of craft in the context of a particular theme to generate new work.

 

This class is for anyone interested in poetry as a spiritual practice and no previous writing experience is required to enjoy the pleasures of creative expression.

 

Come join us and be inspired!

This class will be held from 2:00-3:30pm in-person at Open Spirit in our Edwards Hall.

RSVPs are requested so that we can plan for space and supplies. To RSVP, please click here. 

Suggested donation of $20. Donations may be made in-person by cash or check or mailed to Open Spirit at 39 Edwards Street, Framingham, MA 01701.
