The GPCC Arts Ministry was established in the autumn of 2016 to provide an opportunity for people inside and outside the congregation to connect with God and each other through the creative process. God has given each of us a voice, and creative endeavors allow us to speak to each other and to acknowledge God's presence within us. The Arts Ministry includes art exhibitions, a designated Poetry Sunday, when Poetry is incorporated into the worship service, and opportunities to participate in art making and art classes. An inter-generational dramatic production is presented in December during Advent. Other programs are in formation.

Poetry of the Month

The Place I Want to Get Back To

by Mary Oliver

The place I want to get back to
is where
in the pinewoods
in the moments between
the darkness
and first light
two deer
came walking down the hill
and when they saw me
they said to each other, okay,
this one is okay,
let’s see who she is
and why she is sitting
on the ground like that,
so quiet, as if
asleep, or in a dream,
but, anyway, harmless;
and so they came
on their slender legs
and gazed upon me
not unlike the way
I go out to the dunes and look
and look and look
into the faces of the flowers;
and then one of them leaned forward
and nuzzled my hand, and what can my life
bring to me that could exceed
that brief moment?
For twenty years
I have gone every day to the same woods,
not waiting, exactly, just lingering.
Such gifts, bestowed,
can’t be repeated.
If you want to talk about this
come to visit. I live in the house
near the corner, which I have named
Gratitude.
