Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Confluence! While the weekly Trib covers the immediate news and announcements that are vital for our community, we felt that we needed a space to celebrate the many people who make Two Rivers special. We can lean on, learn from, and contribute to crew only when we know one another. Historically, confluences – where two rivers meet – have been the place for gathering. They even hold sacred weight in some cultures. Come join us at this confluence; only as crew can we live out our mission!
