Thanks to Vernita Kennen of Incarnation Lutheran, ELCA, Shoreview, MN for sharing this Great Idea, via the St Paul Area Synod Newsletter!

Find key resources for creating a more heart- and conscience-healthy observance of the month, such as reading together Bishop Michael Curry’s recent publication, Love Is the Way: Holding on to Hope in Troubling Times and supporting local, regional, and international agents of loving change.
