Readings of the Season: FREE Online Event 

This event will be offered FREE online via Zoom. The Zoom link, login, password will be emailed to all registered guests. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link.

As we enter the Advent season, many will enjoy revisiting favorite literature, poetry, short stories, and other writings that hold a special place in your heart and family traditions.

Amy-Lyles Wilson, a new SMS Board Member and active SMS volunteer & program presenter, will lead guests in an exchange of reading aloud and meditating on these traditions. Bring your favorite reading or excerpt from your favorite seasonal book, or even an original piece to share with fellow participants.

There is no charge for this event – donations are greatly appreciated.
