The youth have experienced so much growth during this year of 2019. They have helped provided blessing bags to those less fortunate, volunteered at the Atlanta Community Food Bank where their shift sorted over 8,000 pounds of food that will feed 5,000 families, and they have helped beautify the church grounds with flowers that will draw butterflies.

Last Sunday, I spoke on Practices of the Mystic’s Path. Who is the mystic? You are the mystic because you are a seeker. Four practices that I talked about were miracles, angels, forgiveness, and meditation.
