10:30am to 11:30am

Our summer discussion/worship series, Building the World We Dream About, provided us with opportunities to reflect both respectfully and fruitfully on the current political situation, the issues of race and gender identity and sexuality recently raised in our community, and concerns about privilege in our denomination.

This service is a consideration of next steps, ways for us to grow even more into a place of open minds, loving hearts, and helping hands.
