Book Club: The book club meets today at 2:30 pm over Zoom. You can join by contacting Kate Wright or Mogens Hansen and you will be provided with the link. The book to be discussed is Small Lives by Jeffrey McClain Jones. It is a story of how a woman stops to help a pregnant teenager she sees trundling along a street. The book for February is Call It Grace: Finding Meaning in a Fractured World by Serene Jones. All are welcome to join.
Annual Congregational Meeting: Our ACM has been postponed, and will now be held on Sunday, February 28
over Zoom. The booklet of reports and other material will be ready two weeks prior to the meeting. We will
advise you of your options for receiving the material soon.
World Interfaith Harmony Week: February 1-7 is the United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week. You can read a letter from Lutheran and Anglican leaders endorsing this initiative when you click here. This week provides a platform – one week in a year – when all interfaith groups and other groups of goodwill can show the world what a powerful movement they are. It is hoped that this initiative will provide a focal point from which all people of goodwill can recognize that the common values they hold far outweigh the differences they have, and thus provide a strong dosage of peace and harmony to their communities.
