Local poet Larry Blake will speak at a service of healing and wholeness at 7 p.m. at Epworth United Methodist Church, 3077 Valleyview Dr., off Central Avenue.
Mr. Blake will talk of his struggles with alcohol addiction and how faith helped his recovery. He will also read from his collection of spiritual poetry titled Poems of Praise.
The Rev. Robert Thomas, pastor, said the public is invited to come and 'pray for your own healing needs, for the needs of others, and to pray for healing in the community and the world.'
