“For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move…” ~Matthew 17:20b
Come and explore how, together, seekers and searchers; wonderers and wanderers; hopers and prayers, we can work, out of our own faith journey and story, to move some of the mountains in our own lives and in the life of our world – mountains like systemic racism, poverty, sexism, homophobia, environmental change, and more. Imagine what we can do, together!
