April 5: “To Be Idle and Blessed” (ONLINE 10:30 AM MST)

Presenter: Intern Minister Mary Beth Bolin

In Mary Oliver’s poem, “The Summer Day,” she says, “I don’t know exactly what a prayer is. / I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down / into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass, / how to be idle and blessed … ”

This week we will wonder together “how to be idle and blessed,” exploring spiritual practice and the grace that comes from giving up, even momentarily, our identity as doers and producers of things, in order to simply experience being alive.

Our online service this Sunday, April 5th, at 10:30 AM Mountain Time, intern minister Mary Beth Bolin will lead worship for Magic Valley UU Fellowship on Zoom at the following link:
