Sacred Singing Circle – Seeking Shelter

Sunday February 23rd at 2:00 p.m.

We gather once again to sing, share prayers, hold silence, and break bread together—to connect with our deepest selves, with our circles of community, and with the Divine. Everyone is welcome to join us and seek shelter in our sanctuary. Being a “good singer” is not required; your voice is beautiful just as it is and you are beautiful just as you are.
