Greetings from Conference Convener Carol Currie:

Dallas is part of a gigantic metroplex and has a consistent energy about it. We Women at Dallas First Unitarian Church create a part of that energy. It was our pleasure to have you join us here where we raised the Feminine Energy to new heights and learned new ways to share it with our world while still caring for ourselves. We became part of “Hearts and Hands Joining for Justice!”
