About this Webinar
What if we talked about saints and holy days in our homes with our families and friends instead of only in the church building? Panelists Allison Liles and Miriam McKenney will be in conversation with host Sarah Bentley Allred about exactly that. They will share methods and concrete ideas with participants.
You can find the video archived on YouTube. The presentation slides and resources are shared via Google Drive.
