The marking of a new calendar year can signal a time of transition for many of us. Join your Tree of Life community on New Year’s Day for an intimate discussion on transition. We will explore this through the Soul Matters themes. Consider how we move from presence to prophecy, i.e. from standing with to speaking out. Nursery care available but no religious education classes.

As we light our candles, we are reminded that we too can bring light where there is darkness and can offer kindness and care to restore healing and hope. A special collection will be taken to benefit Compassion for Campers.
