The Spaces Around Us

Jennifer Odenwald Bacmeister
“The Spaces Around Us”

Worship Leader: Caitlin Regan
Accompanist: Dr. Gary Smart
Guest Musician: George Mann

An exploration of the spaces around us, both literal and figurative. Come and examine how we build spaces to include and exclude, how we use space to both hide and project, and how becoming aware of spaces can improve our well-being.
