Templer Reflection 2013-2023

In 2013, the monthly Templer Talk took on the role of community newsletter, while Templer Reflections became the vehicle for thoughtful, perceptive writings on a multitude of topics, including many from a faith and spiritual perspective.

Over the years, we've published 36 issues. In this special edition, Mark Herrmann has curated a selection of contributions from these past issues. The wealth of thoughtful words and interesting topics is so abundant that our special edition is presented in two volumes, reflecting the richness of our community's discussions and insights.

Happy reading!
