On May 28, Lindsey Hummel led the community in a fun Favorite Hymns exercise which engaged us in exploring the music that reflects the reality of our lives and our purpose as a congregation.  Participants were asked to identify a favorite hymn and then unpack how it revealed spirituality and community.
