In a season of loss and rapid change in our lives, personally and in the church, we gather in person at Faith on Wednesdays from 2-3pm for five sessions, beginning on February 21. Through guided conversations and prayers, we will spend at least two sessions reflecting on personal loss, and at least two sessions on what we see and experience as loss in the church. For both personal and church life, we will aim to lean into signs and expressions of hope. All are welcome, with a special invitation to the Ottawa Lutheran Community. The sessions are facilitated by Pastor Martin. If you have any questions, please email prmartinmalina@gmail.com
