April prayer theme:
Can we end divisiveness?

Everybody not getting along? Want to turn it around?
The solution isn’t always obvious. But if we turn to God through prayer we can find practical solutions.

The Reading Room has articles by people who have come through tense situations with a new sense of Love. This has changed their lives, relationships and overcome serious challenges. Come in and check them out.
