She reminds that we are made in the image of God; that “we are a blessed people sent out of Eden, not a cursed people kicked out”. Come and join the discussion!
  • The Living Project Support Group (on hiatus until further notice).  Interactive sharing where each person’s story becomes part of the bigger story that is being told through all of us. Meets in the Red Room, Classroom 4.
