A ritual of letting go of that which no longer serves us from this past year. In our first service together of 2020, let's gather to let go and to set intentions of the heart for the year ahead.
Speaker: Rev. Lane Campbell

Each Sunday in the Chalice Room (second floor).
Will recycling, refusing, reusing, composting, re-gifting, treating, burning, burying help us solve global warming? Join Kate Fleury of the EcoJustice group, for a lively exchange of ideas.
