Our guest preacher writes: In a world that seems to have taken some disastrously wrong turns, I find myself struggling to maintain balance and a positive outlook. By word of mouth, TV, and print, I’m aware that others are having some of the same difficulties. In my Sunday talk I plan to share some notes (let’s call them “grace notes”) that help me to step forward into the world. I hope that they might help others re-enter life fully and with grace.
Jeanne Foster (she, her) is Professor Emerita at Saint Mary College of California and former minister of the UU society in Modesto CA. A noted poet, writer, and translator, her latest poetry collection is “Your Form Became My Own.” In “A Music of Grace: the Sacred in Contemporary American Poetry,” she asks the question, Is there still sacred ground to stand on? Her passion is ballroom dancing and, in particular, ballroom dancing in Tuscany.
