“This was the first year I had no community events - I am retired, and I can't drive any more - and so I celebrated the season online. I made an original poster for each day. It was a great experience, actually, because each picture was a meditation and it was more personal.” Rev. Gerry Straatemeier

At the conclusion of the discussion period, a representative from each of the groups will present the issues raised in their group for consideration. Each group will have a volunteer church practitioner to assist in moderation. Open and honest, informal discussion is encouraged.Location: Guidance Church, An Affiliate of Centers for Spiritual Living, 7225 Crenshaw Blvd
