New Leadership in the NSP

I’m proud to announce that the Network of Spiritual Progressives has a new co-chair, Rev. J. Alfred Smith Sr., and a new executive director, Cat J. Zavis.

Bendt, discuss how to raise consciousness at a time when so many people want to avoid thinking about our societal crises.
