Sacred Conversations Workshop
Thursdays Sept. 12th & 19th from 6:30-8:30pm
Sharing our story is the most compelling way that we encourage people along their own faith journeys. It can, however, be a very difficult and vulnerable thing to do, especially in the midst of everyday life. This two-part workshop will teach how to engage in practical and meaningful conversations with our neighbors.
