From King David to Dave Matthews, from the Psalms to beat poetry, there’s a way in which songs and verse speak to us in ways narrative prose cannot. They reach a different part of our brains and provoke us at different emotional levels.
This week at New Wineskins we’ll share some poetry and song lyrics with one another, and try to unpack the words behind the words that reach into those deeper places. And we invite you to contribute some lines that you find particularly meaningful for the group to discuss.
So look up your favorite lyrics or dust off that old college poetry book and join us this Sunday, Feb. 3, in the 167 Side Room of the Marietta Brewing Company for our first-ever New Wineskins Poetry Slam and Lyric Party!
Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm
Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
