Event description

Description

Three ways of being in the world. Three companions to one another. Three movements that are essential to the Jesus way and Christian life. Join us as we companion one another to look into, be reminded of, and feel the pull toward living a life of presence, practice, and peace for the sake of our neighbor, city, world, and self.
