A MESSAGE FROM OUR SENIOR MINISTER

What does “love is love” really mean to you? What would life be like if “kindness is everything,” and is it actually true? How do we really understand human legality and rights as spiritual resources? These are the questions that come from the statements above that we will dive into each Sunday from Feb. 18th until Easter. Each week we will post a reflection question for you to write about and ponder your self-inventory with regards to the idea of the week.
