”We are a liberal faith community: an open letter to the Hopedale Community.” I want YOU to STAND on the side of Love. Imagine Uncle Sam pointing his finger at you. Now replace Uncle Sam with the face of your church. Other churches feel comfortable identifying themselves. It’s not just a matter of promotion, its a matter of survival. Come listen to an open letter by Robert Bell asking everyone in Hopedale to stand up; be counted, and be proud. Service Leaders: Robert Bell and Liz Woedl.
