Sermons and Talks:

For a little bit more than a year Rachel has been taking a break from public speaking to spend time with her son Gideon and her husband Ben. During that time Rachel has been writing and organizing a weekly Online Meeting for Worship, which you can find here on this site. In the coming year (2018) Rachel hopes to begin recording her sermons and will be publishing those recordings in the body of the weekly worship services. She also hopes to begin giving more workshops and talks on her work in palliative and hospice care. Stay tuned!
