“A Failure of Understanding” – Rev. Molly Housh Gordon
In a time marked by such deep division and such fraught language, the risk of deeply misunderstanding one another seems higher than ever. How do we speak and listen with humility and power alike?
We will have a New Member Ingathering at both worship services. New members may join during either service. Read more about how to become a member.
