Monthly Theme: Abundance

Abundance of the Universe
Rev. Pam Philips

Looking up at the night sky with its seemingly infinite number of stars can fill us with a sense of connection to all that is, ever was, and will be. How might this sense of wonder and awe at the abundance of the universe inform how we live our lives? There is no children’s RE today. Nursery care available.
