Sunday, March 21 at 11:00 a.m. - METRE-MAKING ARGUMENTS In his essay, “The Poet,” Ralph Waldo Emerson declared that “it is not metres, but a metre-making argument, that makes a poem,—a thought so passionate and alive, that, like the spirit of a plant or an animal, it has an architecture of its own, and adorns nature with a new thing.” On World Poetry Day, we will reflect upon the nature and value of the poetic spirit, from the ancient psalmist to the modern lyricist. Rev. Stefan Jonasson will preach.
