September 2017 at the Dublin Unitarian Church

“Departing summer hath assumed
An aspect tenderly illumed,
The gentlest look of spring;
That calls from yonder leafy shade
Unfaded, yet prepared to fade,
A timely carolling.”
– William Wordsworth, September

This month they are reading Thirteen Ways Of Looking by Colum McCann.
