Realms of Caring was the name of the companion program for the parents whose children are participating in Spiritual Play and Sunday School. They have had such a good experience they are inspired to rename their group to Kindlings. They have a great story behind their new name. If you want to explore how to talk with your children or grandchildren about spirituality this program is for you. We are thankful to Laurie Folsom for hosting and leading this program. Plus, it serves some pretty good coffee in addition to some great conversation.
