    Witnessing for One Another with Rev. Blaze Ardman

    Join us for this hour when people can come together to speak their stories, stories from their lives, past or current, to be witnessed and heard. Stories can be related to the pandemic or not. Stories of sorrow, grief, loss, joy; despair and hope. Or stories with seemingly no theme at all. Our stories shared in this way can touch the heart and connect us as most of us can relate to others who are speaking their truths from their own hearts. Deep listening such as this allows us to see the face of God in each other - even on Zoom. Confidentiality will be maintained.

    Blaze Ardman is an interfaith minister, grief counselor and member of the WJC. If you have questions, contact Blaze Ardman at perriblaze@yahoo.com.
