Greetings to all!

July 14, 2021: Summer Explorations continue this week (see below) as we explore “Spirituality,” with particular attention to how our experience and practice of spirituality changes as we grow and age. Kathy Dawson writes… People grow and change over time.  This is an obvious statement that can be confirmed with our own eyes.  We watch children grow from infancy to adulthood.  We’re conscious of our own bodies and minds changing as we age.  When it comes to our spiritual lives, however,…
