Description: In listening to the Exodus story with an open heart, new Light shines on our condition today. We find Faithfulness empowered through Love, and Promise or Wholeness invited through Brokenness. The listening will trace our personal journeys amidst climate breakdown and also connect our varied concerns. This time combines ministry, worship sharing, and simple hands-on creative activity.
