Deep, authentic relationships are key not only to our emotional well-being but to our growth in Christian discipleship and the health of our wider communities. Yet more and more people report feeling lonely and isolated, unsure of how to connect with others meaningfully. In our summer Garden Conversations, we will look at our need for deepened relationship connections with each other, and will get some practical direction as we discuss four books on the skills, practices, and habits that create significant relationship connections. Read one or all four books, come when you can (even if you haven’t read)!  Meeting at 11:30 in the Holly Garden on the listed Sundays (Fireside Room if weather is inclement).
