Meditation On The Cycles of Life

On Sept. 25, Rev. Beth took a different approach to the sermon time. She led us in a guided meditation on the cycles of life. To listen to this as a podcast you will need to make some time and quiet space to experience it. Listen to each excerpt in order, and allow a minute or two of reflection between each piece.
