Navigating Change

This week Rev. Nica has returned from dropping her son off at college, and her summer break. Families are returning from summer vacations and sending kids back to school. It’s a time of big transitions for all. We will bless the backpacks we use in returning to our work and school lives and hold a special collection for school supplies for those in need.
