There Is a Balm: Faith Communities, Trauma and Their Call to Respond (via Zoom)
Tuesday, Jun 1
6:00pm – 7:30pm
Keynote Speaker: The Rev. Dr. Frederick Jerome Streets

Faith communities can play a crucial role in recognizing trauma and creating spaces that support the healing of trauma experienced by individuals and communities. How can our faith communities respond to that call? Join us as we examine the biblical understanding of offering balm and providing hospitality to those whom we serve. The evening will include prayer, study and lecture, and will serve as the basis for the entire Together on Our Way series.
