10:30 – 11:30 KUUF Sanctuary, Joseph Bednarik: The Favorite Poem Service is an intimate celebration of the power of poetry, and follows a simple format: A person stands before the congregation, tells why a particular poem is important in their life, and then reads or recites the poem. This home-grown service is part performance art, part oral anthology, and a fantastic way to get to know fellow congregants in a deeper way. (Please note that the readers are selected prior to the service, so this is not an open call to participate.)
Joseph Bednarik, a frequent and much appreciated speaker at KUUF, is a publisher at Copper Canyon Press in Pt. Townsend and assistant to the minister for preaching at Quimper Unitarian Fellowship.
