What nurtures your soul? What makes your heart tender – prayer, music, fellowship, tea poured in peace, homemade banana bread baked with love and shared with a smile? Whatever the answer might be, sharing prayers with friends gets us all closer to the Creator.
This Thursday, June 28th, we invite you and your loved ones to a Prayer Station in Arlington on the theme of Renewal. We’ll start at 8 pm with selections from the holy writings of different religious traditions, continue with uplifting songs, and conclude with tea and sweets.
