“Baby, We Need a Barn-Raising”
With Jennifer Bacmeister as Worship Leader
Pandemic isolation has had a deep impact on mental health and community dynamics. How can we show up with authenticity — virtually and in person — as we continue to exercise caution due to COVID-19. Rev. Erin Walter will reflect on spiritual resources for mental health and our calling to community care, drawing inspiration from music, Mr. Rogers, and more.
