As we all continue to find ways to connect virtually and be there for each other while we’re physically apart, Gen UU is offering Secret Stanza, a holiday poetry exchange! UUCW young adults (18 – 35 years old) are invited to become a Secret Stanza then gather virtually at a January Gathering.
Express your interest to Gen UU’s coordinator Chelsey Nesbit and she will assign you a randomly chosen Gen UU poem recipient (and you will become a recipient). Participants will e-mail their fellow UU 1-2 times per week between now and Sunday, January 3, 2021, with a poem, stanza, sonnet, verse, etc. 😉 These might be a seasonal poem or a poem that brings comfort or brightens the recipient’s day. You do not have to write or create the poems (unless you want to!). Check out poems.com, poetryfoundation.org, and https://www.uua.org/worship/words/poetry for resources.
On Sunday, January 3 all Secret Stanzas (and non-participants) will gather on Zoom to share poems that particularly brought joy to recipients.
Contact Chelsey Nesbit to sign up. If you have a friend that might like to participate or join, please feel free to forward this information.
