We go through collective transitions, also. Our city is in a time of transition. Transitions are often difficult, but they can be times of profound transformation as well. At this meeting, we will explore practices that can support us during times of transition. For more information on Sacred Space, contact Charlotte Nichols or the Rev. Canon Kay Rackley.
