Tales from the Road – Announcements, Grasshoppers and Coming Home

Some of you may have seen the news from this weekend's Summer Gathering, but just in case you missed it, the link to the news is here. What a blessing to have such a moment handled with so much thought, care, and grace. An honour to be a

Tales from the Road – Coffee Houses, Operas and Roses
