When was the last time you had an experience that touched your soul? If you are looking to encounter your faith in a way that challenges you, changes you, and charges you to live as a Christian in today’s world, JustFaith may be for you. JustFaith is a mind- and heart-opening journey that invites participants to encounter the Spirit of Jesus in our midst, especially in the lives of people who are poor and vulnerable. It is an opportunity to honor the call of discipleship within God’s vision of justice and reconciliation. Everyone is welcome! If you might be interested, please attend one of the upcoming (no-pressure!) information sessions:
