The Courage to Love
Rev Dr Richard Speck

In a world that tries to isolate us from one another, a society that encourages bowling alone, we are called as religious people to build communities of love. We are called to reach out to others, comfort them and celebrate with them. This is the work of a congregation. We will look at what it takes to build a strong community of love.
