a common theme. This year's OCOP theme is "Begin Again" and we're inviting you to join us for
"Begin Again: A Journey of Faith" on Tuesday, April 29. This free event is open to all, ages 18 and up,
regardless of writing experience but we need you to register no later than Friday, April 25.
We encourage people of all faith traditions to participate.
