    How would you describe your church experience? Is it a safe place, or is it something else?
    Kate Young Caley grew up loving a little church in Moultonboro, N.H. But when she was only 5, her father became ill and her mother took a job as a waitress where she was required to serve wine and beer, which violated the church’s covenant.
