Connecting the Heart with the Head... a Lenten Journey
Connecting the Heart with the Head is a refreshing four-week online Lenten dialogue that will explore the deepening of our faith by reaffirming or reconnecting our hearts with our heads.
Beginning on Wednesday evening, March 3rd at 7:00pm, we invite you to join the Rev Wayne Parsons via an online Webex video call. For 45 minutes each Wednesday evening for four consecutive weeks, in a COVID safe environment, we will discuss a topic of interest.
To sign-up for this online series, simply send your email, in confidence, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Prior to our first session, you will receive a link or instructions to download the Webex app which is required to connect to this videoconference series.
