  10. Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Tacoma

Three speakers will offer brief reflections on Jesus, which offer’ guidance to us for all such times of darkness:

  • Pastor Anne-Cecile Porter, University Place Presbyterian Church, – “Feed God’’s Sheep”

The music will feature wonderful traditional hymns, such as “Amazing Grace,”  When I Survey The Wondrous Cross,” and “Were you there…?”
