Where Is Your Hope? Spirituality and Seekers
A Day of Exploration and Conversation

Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019
9 a.m.–3 p.m.

We welcome all spiritual seekers no matter who you are or what your spiritual or religious persuasion is. Perhaps you are unaffiliated with a religious tradition or maybe you regularly attend religious service. Maybe you feel “on the margins” because of your spirituality, lifestyle or work in the pressing needs of our time. You are most welcome.
