The Space Between
The Space Between is a mini-blog written by Interim Minister Dan Wolpert. He says it is “a place for brief reflections, quotes, suggestions for spiritual practices and questions for you to ponder. All of them will have some relevance to this interim time: a time for reflection, watching, waiting, seeing the new life that will emerge. This column is also an open invitation for you to contact me to talk, meet, visit and get to know each other. Please feel free to reach out.” Please click on the links to see a PDF of the columns.
