by Rev. Christina Leone-Tracy Join us for our fourth Sunday in the “6 C’s of Courage” series focusing on Compassion as a tool to cultivate courage in the face of fear.

From the beginning the Fellowship’s mission has included “welcoming.” Over the years we’ve used good process to strive to be welcoming to all who enter our doors. We’ll take a look at our history and how it shapes who we are and informs where we’re going. Marti Wheeler, Terry Dawson, Theresa Hannah and Merry Schoenfeld spent time last winter reviewing and cleaning Fellowship archive records and will share some information about the Fellowship’s history.

How do we maintain awareness of, create and manage these spaces in our lives? “Minding the gap” has many rich and varied meanings to examine, and you won’t even need a passport to enjoy this journey!
