Rev. Barnaby walked into an unusual coffee store on vacation in Charleston, SC, and walked out with the theme for today’s sermon. We heard a wonderful Time for All Ages on Ali Stroker from Becky Strum and moving testimony from Charter House’s Exec Dir. Heidi Lacey, adorned our three trees of love—justice, compassion and beauty–and wrapped up our Radical Love raffle. Watch the service here.
