Why are things the way they are throughout the world today? We often do not take time to think about why there are good things in our lives, and also bad things. Amazing natural beauty from sunsets to shear cliffs at the edge of the sea. And, at the same time there are natural disasters, wars and incredible cruelity of mankind toward one another.
We don't claim to know all the answers, but we think it important to think about the big questions in life. Why are we here? Is there purpose for my life? What happens next? With this in mind we try, amoung many other things to provide opportunities to listen and interact with others around these and other similar topics. Why? Because what we believe matters. It shows up ultimately in the way we live, act and treat others around us.
Here are a few things Kinsale ABC has done in the recent past. We look forward to offering more opportunities like these in the future.
