Writing Circle Meets Sunday, July 10

The ecumenical Writing Circle meets again at Heatherhope on Sunday, July 10, back at the time of 4:00 p.m.  Our practice is to meet meet the second Sunday of each month unless we need to reschedule due to important conflicts.

All those who wish to explore and express faith through writing are invited to join us for our sessions. Those who wrote pieces for the Lenten devotional book, “In the Breaking of the Bread” are especially encouraged to join us.

We talk over ways of improving our writing, but we joyfully affirm that all writing is good writing because it has the potential to heal and inspire by opening us up to God’s blessings at work in the world. Writing about pains and joys, triumphs and failures, faith and doubt–it all has the potential to bless.

It’s a good thing to be honest with God!

We do talk over the writing craft, but most of our session time is spent sharing things we have written or things we have discovered that simply must be shared. Our most important work is listening well and deeply to others.

And there are no age limits to this sort of writing. Young and old and in-between are urged to take part. To all we offer a safe and healing environment.

We meet at Heatherhope Farm, 22417 Airport Road in Sycamore, Illinois. If you don’t know the way, click on the “Directions” tab near the top of this web page. Or just phone the Seraphines at 815-895-9736.

You are always welcome at the Writing Circle.
