Built off the acronym MIRROR, this inspirational talk related to what every community needs will be a reminder of the covenant principles of the GBUUAF. This simple conversation encourages hearers and says: You matter, the events shaping your life are important; relationships support individual growth; we are responsible for ourselves and to each other; challenges are opportunities for growth; and intentional reflections remind us of how far we’ve come while providing focus for the work ahead.
