“During the Glocal Gathering workshop we practiced some of the exercises that you (Linda) presented in the Cross†Generational Engagement training. The results were amazing. I have a meeting with the women of Sion Lutheran Church and they are very happy with the exercises. Thanks for the presentation and all of the things you shared.” Pastor Sharon Rio
