Our month-long theme is Universalism and we will kick off a 3-part sermon series by addressing the Universalism of our past. What is the religious tradition we come out of? How does our history inform who we are today?

My experiences in the last three years as a new high school teacher. Did you have difficulty in primary or secondary school from a health related issue? How did you resolve it? David Damico facilitates.
