Writer’s Church : Every Sunday is also a celebration of art as a tool of resistance. We have Writer’s Church, and we have poetry that honors the art and practice of sacred storytelling. During our Sunday Celebration Writers Church you can start writing all the things you are grateful for with one of our free journals and pens that we pass out every Sunday. We invite you to donate a poem to Poetry For the People, in the offering basket or by emailing it to email@example.com.
