Spring Renewal Series
 
Pillars of Transformation: This Idea is Substance
 
with Rev. Sydney Lehman Steen
 
Sunday, March 24th ~ 11:00 a.m.
 
In every moment we have the opportunity to choose a higher idea. To allow a Divine Idea to manifest or expand in our lives. We understand that as we change the way we look at things, we know that what we perceive as our reality will change. Today, as we choose larger stories, we find a world of unlimited possibility, peace, love and expansion.
