‘We sang our way through how difficult this is.’-Rev. Dr. Leon Dunkley, Willow Tree Flowers, It Is Time Now
Join in worship that celebrates and practices our ability to love beyond our known skill for loving, to co-create that which has not yet become. Together let us choose to live into the promise of collective liberation.
