Clocks go back at 2 a.m. today! Don’t forget, or you will arrive at the service very early! (Not the end of the world. We’ll give you a cup of coffee and you’ll have lots of time to chat and relax.)
Justice doesn’t just happen when good people come together to do the work, and it doesn’t happen overnight through immediate action. We will be exploring deep relationship building and spiritual practice as a means to accomplish Justice.
