Reflections on the Journey
Sailing Stones Podcast
In summer 2022, St. John’s began a podcast to share thoughts and ideas from the minister, staff and members on faith and congregational matters. The subjects we cover are a way for us to ‘sail’ joys and concerns forward into the future. The Sailing Stones of Death Valley are a fascinating phenomena to which many have ascribed supernatural properties over the years. After much careful study they finally recently uncovered a scientific reason.
As they are created, podcasts will be linked below.
