Our Response to COVID-19

We all need prayer and support during ordinary times, but as we are in uncertain times with the Coronavirus, we need it even more. So we offer reflections, spiritual practices, online groups, the opportunity to share prayer requests of those you want us to hold in prayer, with the hope that they meet you where you are and offer solace during this time.

The Enneagram enables us to recognize the gift we hold and contribute to others as well as the defense we have built which locks us away from others. Through teaching and discussion, we will explore together how, in this present time, we can find ways to bring that best self forward.
