Sunday Morning

"Creating Stone Soup"

Led by Rev. Aisha Ansano

Sometimes, we are asked for something and it feels as though we have nothing to give. How can we learn to notice the abundance in our lives, and to accept abundance from others? Together, let's explore some lessons from the story of Stone Soup, and how they might apply in our own lives. 

This service will be held in the sanctuary and on Zoom:
