This week at Mary Oliver.

Several thousand people at the UUA's General Assembly in St Louis this past weekend got to hear Mary Oliver read her poetry for an hour as this year's Ware Lecturer. One of her new poems, "Those Days," is featured at this week. (I'll add a link to the Ware Lecture once the video is online; I'm eager to watch it because I had to duck out of the hall to avoid fainting with hunger.)

Also this week, Rich Higgins interviews Forrest Church about a TV program he wrote, "The American Creed." (The program aired on the Hallmark Channel on Sunday night. I'm hoping it will be rebroadcast or made available on DVD.) Don Skinner reports that 410 people attended the UU University lay leadership training conference in St Louis just before the start of General Assembly. And Don also interviews UU same-sex couples who have been married in Massachusetts since the state legalized gay marriage in 2004.

On's blogs, Sonja Cohen is keeping track of Unitarian Universalists in the media, and I've been filing news updates from the UUA General Assembly.
