In case you haven't noticed Pathways of Grace has been making some changes.  When I took the leap of faith and started Pathways of Grace in my living room I had hopes to see it evolve into a center where there were others willing to gather and share their passion to create a safe space where all are welcome to listen deeply to One's life, soul, God/Divine and each other.
