In this service, we'll explore the brave ways we create safety, listen deeply, and remain fully present with each other as we go through the highs and lows of life.
We'll look at ways to avoid burnout and emotional exhaustion from all that space holding! Finally, we'll celebrate the many ways we at MVUUF have dedicated our lives to holding space for others.
