(Friday dinner â€“ Sunday lunch)
God, as Lover and Healer, ever invites us to new possibilities and to believe in our potential to make a difference in the midst of our violent and hurting world.
Through Scripture, contemporary stories, and poetry, we will be stretched and challenged to believe in our call to become mystics, saints and prophets. We will laugh, cry and celebrate as we recognize more deeply the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
