With the changing of the seasons, the wheel of the year turns to harvest gathering ahead of the coming cold. How will we prepare to greet autumn’s dawning? What will we gather around our hearth fires to carry us through the season? And who will we become as we embrace belonging for ourselves and our planet in the rest of the year? Join our guest speaker Leika Lewis-Cornwell for this service.
