Poetry and Prayer

Dear Editor,

I recently attended a panel discussion at the Firehouse Arts Center. It was a thought-provoking, inspiring and intriguing discussion about the connection of prayer and poetry.

The poetry, song and prayer examples were very moving, and I did take away some inspiration for further exploration. A great night, thank you to the fascinating panelists from a variety of religious backgrounds, and thank you to our Poet Laureate, Deborah Grossman, for creating and presenting this event. More poetry at the Firehouse, please.
