Rev. Barnaby reflected on how the arts help us understand what it means to be staging a beginning. He will introduced us to Ronnie Romano, our new music director. Our recording started late and leads with Poppy Rees, our religious exploration director, addressing us about her beginning back in the sanctuary delivering Time for All Ages for first time in 530 days and how she is reminded that she is not alone. We re-recorded Ronnie’s introduction, which you can view from a link we’ll provide soon.
