“Poetry as a Tool for Wellness” with Rev. Larry Peers (in building and online)
Join us for this new series on using poetry to find meaning in our lives. Rather than trying to understand exactly what the author may have intended, we will provide generous support to one another as we focus on how poems and words can offer healing and understanding. This is not about writing the perfect poem but about finding ways to express your thoughts and experiences creatively as well as to learn from one another. Rev. Larry Peers, Minister at First Unitarian Church in Wilmington draws upon his training with the Institute for Poetic Medicine in this ongoing series.

12:00-1:00 pm: Conversation and Book Signing with Rev. Nathan Detering
When Rev. Nathan Detering shared the story of his brother’s death from a drug overdose with the members of his congregation, many of them shared their own addiction stories with him. Realizing the healing power of sharing stories and questions in community, Rev. Detering conducted interviews to identify and address the common questions that haunt us when we love someone with addiction. In conversations both within and outside his community, he heard the palpable need for those struggling with loved one’s addictions to know they are not alone.
