Lent 2020: The Altar Builder Series

In the ancient days, when G-d came near and his people felt his presence, many times they would stop what they were doing and build an altar to their Lord. An altar of stones, rock or whatever was at hand to memorialize what had happened. We will explore and consider the various altars we build and why we build them. We will be off the lectionary for this series.
