Consider yourself invited to go to the “Other Side” with Jesus this Lent.
Go on some “Other Side Adventures,” this Lent. You will be delighted, challenged, and informed by people whom you might think of as hopelessly different. Maybe you’ve always wanted to have a glimpse into how other people live or worship. Look inside for several opportunities.
