Healing Alongside Death

Many talk with such admiration for people who are in positions of healing. Yet, healing comes in many different versions and styles.

Covenant of the Brokenhearted

A covenant is not a set of rules or a contract.  It's a promise that we make, over and over, to come back to community.  Not in spite of our mistakes, but because of them.  Because we mess up over and over, we need to practice how to come back.
