HPM Open Doors Poetry Evening—Friday 9th March at 7.00pm.  As part of the ‘Fringe’ of StAnza (The St Andrews Poetry Festival) we are holding our own DIY Poetry evening on the 9th March in the HPM Church Halls!  This is ‘semi-detached’ to the festival, we have their blessing, but they won’t be advertising it . . . it’s all our own work.  The form will be this:  you bring along a poem that maybe you have always loved;  or has perhaps interested you;  or maybe even you have written;  or … whatever.  There will be a chairperson and when they call for a reader, you stick your hand up . . . say maybe a wee word about the
poem, and your relation to it and then read it.  Then you sit down to thunderous applause.  We have several readers signed up already, so a full and interesting evening is guaranteed.  But please bring your own favourites . . . just don’t bring ‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner’ please!  We will be serving teas and coffees afterwards. The evening will be free, but donations are always welcome.

Lectionary Readings 25th February:  Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16, Romans 4: 13-25 and Mark 8:31-38.
