In all likelihood, you are more resilient than you realize. Since you are reading this, you are a monument to the human ability to cope with change, tragedy, crisis, growth, happiness, grief, turns of fortune, and a host of other challenges. In the midst of a world pandemic and social justice revolution, you are scanning the paper to see what is being offered on this Sunday morning. No matter what you are looking for… inspiration, community, spiritual support…your active search is a testament to your remarkable resilience. Come explore this idea with us at an on-line lay-led service offered by All Souls Church at 10am.
