Sofa Spiritualty

June 5, 2023 to June 28, 2023

Sofa Spirituality starts up again with ten new interviews and dialogues in the month of June. Beginning on Monday, June 5, join Rabbi Ron Symons and Rev. Liddy Barlow on the virtual sofa. Each session features an interview with a spiritual leader – a window into a neighbor’s spirituality – followed by a time of dialogue – a window to reflect on our own spirituality.
