Who Are We? Members of Council Circle offered a worship time of music, reflection and prayer. The Interrobang was described and featured as an image on the screens throughout the service. This symbol shares “Question” and “Aha” in one image. (The question mark and the exclamation mark written together.) The beautiful childrens’ book “In God’s Name” by Sandy E. Sasso was shared (with permission) as part of scripture reading.
Below is a collage of photos from the service.
