Returning from Exile: Rediscovering our Common Life after a Time Apart


Since March of 2020, we have experienced a period of exile from our church community, as we have taken steps to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. As we resume a more normal schedule at Heavenly Rest, we will reflect on what we have experienced as a community and consider how that will shape our lives going forward. Join us after supper on Wednesday evenings in September. All presentations and discussions will take place in Gerhart Hall.
