Widening the Circle of Concern

If these pandemic times have taught us anything, it is that we need one another and that we have been through much together. As we look at reemerging from this pandemic, we have the opportunity to deepen out commitments to one another and to the many who are drawn by the power of our theological legacy. Join Rev.
