Home Church Langley

Testimonials

Our lives are filled with stories. Everything from how a child explained a gold star on a big school project, or how someone cemented a friendship through an unexpected visit, to a story of feeling abandoned when a sister/brother/friend told others about a secret they had sworn to keep can be woven into the patchwork quilt that we sometimes call our lives. We listen to stories to try make more sense of life and our lives.
