I’m really excited to share some words with you from my dear friend, Karyn. She worked at Imago Dei in Portland, and was one of the contributors at The Illumination Project filming last summer.

Even if you’re not new, I thought we would do a little flashback in case you missed this series I did answering questions on the topic of respect.
