Rev. David Herndon, Senior Minister. “Welcome the Heart, Welcome the Head, Welcome the Soul! And Welcome the Hands! ”

We are spiritually healthier human beings when we can appreciate the many different dimensions of who we are. Each part of our personality has something worthwhile to contribute. We grow spiritually when we can understand this more deeply.
