Naked in the New Year
In 2022 we want to invite you to come on a 12-week journey that will strip off all of the religious baggage that weighs you down and holds you back. ‘Naked Spirituality’ by Brian McLaren will facilitate our themes for January, February, and March. We are putting together a 7-day rotation of people who will share their thoughts and insights. If you want to be a part of it, just let us know and we will set you up with the schedule.
