The Rear View Mirror and the Road Ahead: Finding Our Center – January 1, 2023

Anita Wald-Tuttle originated a Cider Sunday years ago.

At the Threshold of Change: A Tapestry Service – November 6, 2022

So many of us are finding ourselves at the threshold of change. No longer where we were, not yet where we will be. In this holy place, there is an invitation to the now. Hear from three of our members about finding their way through experiences of profound change in their own lives.
