“Spring Spirituality,” Rev. Sarah Oelberg

Spring is the time when we feel most spiritual – most connected with the earth and our surroundings, as we see signs of new life and renewal.  This is probably why most major religions celebrate their most important holidays in the spring, to coincide with the natural feelings of hope and resurrection. Special music by Poul and Linda Sandersen.
