Facing Challenges

Posted on May 25, 2018 by

The second piece of the UCCI mission statement mentions ‘loving one another’.  As I write this I am reflecting on the fact that this week we woke up to the news of yet another horrific mass shooting in our country.  Clearly as a country we have a long way to go.  Right now there are […]
