This Sunday we will celebrate Peace Sunday and focus on the theme “Defending Hope.”
Mennonite Central Committee has provided a devotional guide as we prepare to worship together.
This year’s theme involves learning from the global church. We will hear stories from MCC’s Palestinian, South Sudanese, Columbian, and Korean friends and partners. May the experience of engaging with these stories, our personal reflections, and prayers serve to strengthen our faith, our journey with Jesus, and our journey with one another.
Here’s the link:
All are welcome to join Friday prayer from 11:30 a.m. to 12 noon.
Friday Prayer began early on during the pandemic as a way to remain connected personally and through prayer. It met an important need.
Is Friday Prayer continuing to meet our needs? Perhaps you have suggestions/ideas of other ways to nurture our faith and strengthen our spiritual practices.
I welcome your feedback and your ideas.
We could also be thinking about our next book club! What are you reading that you would like to welcome others into?
This fall I read Kate Bowler’s latest book: “No Cure for Being Human and other truths I needed to hear.”
In a culture that constantly strives to improve, Kate encourages us to cut back on self-help Kool-Aid and get off the toxic positivity band wagon.
With a deep faith and spiritual wisdom, Kate writes with deep hope.
I’d love to hear what you’re reading and how it is nourishing your spirit.
