‘8 Habits of Love’
How do I know I’m living the life I should be? How do I best help others when they need it? How do I talk candidly with difficult people?

Every person can live a full and creative life if they can learn to move through troubling emotions such as fear, anger, and sadness to find the beloved within themselves. Join friends at Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church as together we engage in excellent book “8 Habits of Love” (available locally at Once Upon A Time bookstore) by the Rev. Ed Bacon of All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena. The worship series continues through Easter on Sundays at 10 a.m., with reflection groups meeting throughout the week.
