Bread for the Journey
Each "journey" begins with introductions, a reading and often a guided meditation. Conversation follows around a theme for the day such as forgiveness, new starts and acceptance. Art activities incuding journaling sessions are part of this time together. The women share stories with one another from their lives and experiences.

After the two-hour session, members of GRCC serve lunch. More sharing and conversation occur informally on the theme of the morning. The most profound conversation tends to take place as the women sit together in small groups outdoors, in the Garden of Memory, or in the sanctuary.

Rev. Reynolds comments, "My time with Bread is so rich, so fulfilling, so wonderful. It's the highlight of my month! We are indeed sisters on the journey together - Muslim, Jew, and Christian. I thank God for the opportunity to serve and be served through Bread." Integrity members describe this monthly outing as peaceful and inspiring. Bread for the Journey provides an opportunity to bond and share openly.
