Join the Discussion!

Each month, we'll curate podcasts, videos, and books to focus on a new topic. Take in a few or take in them all. Just choose which ones you want, then join the conversation. We'll meet to discuss with coffee and snacks.

Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious.
