During the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone has suffered losses and experienced change - for some it has been the loss of loved ones; for others the loss of routines and familiar, canceled events and maybe the loss of going into work or school to name a few. Please join us for an evening reflecting on "integrating losses and change during the pandemic with faith and hope." We will share stories of hope and faith that have been transformative during this time for some. Make sure to bring a candle for our ritual to light the way for love.
"When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something's suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful." Billie Mobayed
