Be gentle with yourself | RELIGION NOTES

People are used to the messages that remind us to “buck up, be responsible, be tough.” They may not be so familiar with the reminder to “be gentle with ourselves.”

Musical inspiration will be provided by Dinah Stinson with support from Tadd CharetteNunn. Quin Serra will be the platform assistant. All are welcome. Visit for details.
