We Welcome Interim Pastor
Living at peace with ourselves and others. Doesn’t that sound great? We are bombarded all the time with violence in the news, entertainment and around us in our everyday lives. Everything from bombing and shootings to drivers making rude gestures to one another. There is just way too much hatred, anger and violence.
We have had our first Adult Forum on non-violence with Sister Paulette and Josie Setzler. They will be back for our May 11 workshop. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to learn how to be more at peace. Although we are often troubled by the uproar around us, it is only be becoming more peaceful within that we are able to deal with what is going on around us.
Adult Forums on May 5, 12 and 19 will also be centered on peaceful living. Steve Hatfield, Grace Fogle and Robin Hren will be leading these sessions for us. We will be dealing with ways to be more centered in our own being and ways to handle conflict with others.
The bulletin board outside of the Chapel has a section dedicated to non-violence/peace. Please take a few moments to look over the material. As we look for ways in which we can be instruments of God’s peace in our community and world, we hope you will share your questions, hopes, resources, etc. with us. You can pass those on to me or to any member of the Mission and Service Board.
Yours in Christ,
