Thank youJoin us NEXT Sunday,September 4, 2022 at 10:00 am for Work and Play – This Labor Day weekend, we think about what makes the difference between work and play, about how we are drawn into the drive to “do” or feel the deep need to simply “be” and how we mark transitions between the two and find value in the space and tension between these polarities.
