www.cedarlane.org/livestream
Join us for a multifaith, multicultural Spirit Experience of exploration and witness in song and word to remember, in the words of Dr. King, how we are “caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.”  We come together with gratitude for the gift of Life as we live into a new way of breath and being in hopefulness and action that unites us across our differences.  We come together to remind ourselves and each other that we are in this together, and that we are held by a courageous Love that will not let us go, let us down, or let us off the hook.  Together, we script a new storyline of how we move forward in oneness and hope.
