September 25, at 10 am, 3845 North Swan Street – “The Wisdom of Robert Frost”
While the United States has always been more inclined towards business than poetry, Robert Frost could probably lay claim to being our most popular and well-loved poet although most people are familiar with only a few of his best-known poems. Dr. Pat Sterling will be exploring a few of his lesser known but still excellent short poems.
“Although a modernist poet, Frost preferred using traditional rhyme and meter, once famously stating that writing in free verse was ‘like playing tennis with the net down.’ He was a master of conveying his ideas with a minimum of words,” Sterling said.
She added, “For example, consider how in just two lines, Frost is able to tell us a great deal about the aging process: ‘The old dog barks backwards without looking up. / I can remember when he was a pup.’”
Dr. Pat Sterling is a retired Professor of English from Western Colorado University in Gunnison, Colorado. Her lifelong interest in the poetry of Robert Frost dates back to her high school days.
There are speakers on the patio if you wish to enjoy the service outside.
This Sunday there will be a Children’s Religious Education program. Parents are invited to bring children four years old and up to attend youth-led classes. Ninth grader Ivy Stephens-Etheridge, a former CRE student, will read a story and lead a lesson on the theme of “Reading” this Sunday.
