November Work of Piety

“We Make the Road by Walking”
 
In preparation for each Sunday we encourage you to read the assigned chapter from our congregational study book and related scripture texts, and spend time, in-dividually or in a small group, with the reflection questions provided. Even if you don’t have the book, we encourage you to read the weekly scripture texts which will be printed each month in the newsletter.
