John Certalic 

"Them : The Richer Life Found in Caring for Others"

Thursday, September 8, 2016 | 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Monday, September 19, 2016 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am

THEM is a story of developing richer relationships by caring for others. John Certalic weaves his deeply personal story with the stories of others, to show we can all become part of a much larger, more meaningful story than our own. You’ll be drawn into life-giving narratives of forgiveness and reconciliation, honoring others, resolving conflict, listening well, and more. It’s a story of hope found in viewing our past through the lens of grace. And it’s a story that encourages us to recognize that when we focus on THEM, it leads to a better ME, resulting in a more fulfilling US.
