It’s been a really tough week, and that’s been reflected in the topics of our blogs.
The irony of Earth Day / week being “derailed” by the devastation of a massive earthquake did not go unnoticed.

We can help our congregations by trying to be truly welcoming to all, being present and taking the journey one step at a time, helping others to bring scripture alive by remembering that the foundation of it all is love.
