“The Reluctant Acceptance That Peace Begins With Me”
Rev. Jeanne Pupke
The official start of summer is also a time of remembering the cost of war. Maybe it is time for a very practical examination of what we CAN do about it all.
The Nursery will be open 9:45-11:30 AM to greet those three years old and under. They will be welcomed with open arms and engaged in gentle play. A snack of Cheerios will be offered. If you have allergy concerns however, please provide your own child’s snack.
