Rev. Amy E. Brooks presents us with “A Sense of Wonder” It is indeed wonderful when for a moment we are touched by the mystery of creation. What is the place of wonder in our lives and how does our religious community help us appreciate or evoke that sense of wonder?

She worked for many years with the Regional AIDS Interfaith Network in Charlotte, providing pastoral care and education .
