Good Intentions

Everyone suffers from disconnects between their intentions and the impact of their actions. Rev. Barnaby looked at the hazards of generosity and how to avoid them. Special music from Shannon LaRose on banjo. Followed by congregational conversation on classism. We collected for DRUUMM.
