Dear Friends

I hope you are planning to join us for our simple time of retreat, refreshment and renewal next Saturday from 10 am until 12 noon. Be sure to drop me an email at [email protected] to let us know you are coming. It’s free, and Rev. Karen has innovated this retreat specifically for communities like ours struggling to find inner peace at times like this. If you are stressed out and long for a deeper connection with God and with others, sign up. You are welcome to bring friends, family members, neighbors – one member asked if he could invite his mom, to which we said enthusiastically, “Yes!” We hope to see you.

Join us this Sunday for worship as we commemorate the lives of Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson and Cynthia Wesley, who were murdered at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham AL this week in 1963. I will preach on forgiveness, and my scriptures are Romans 14:1-2 and Matthew 18:21-35. Come hear why it is important to still say the names of these children almost 60 years later. My friend Laura Fields Peterson will sing the hauntingly beautiful song “Birmingham Sunday.”

This week we all saw a rare sight – orange skies. Come enjoy the timeless comfort of Spiritual community. Be sure to bring something to eat and drink as we share communion.

Hope to see you at the Welcome Table,
