On May 3rd following the worship service, we will gather to celebrate our favorite Ghanian, Faustina Appiah. Tina will be traveling back home to Ghana the following week so will gather to remember and celebrate her time with us. Join us!
Beginning Wednesday evening, May 13th at 7:00 PM, we will gather together to discuss Father Richard Rohr’s book, Breathing Underwater.
In Breathing Under Water: Spirituality and the Twelve Steps, Rohr describes how the Twelve Steps of the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) program is America’s most significant and authentic contribution to the history of spirituality.
In this exploration, Richard draws parallels between Christian principles and AA’s Twelve Steps, connecting AA’s Big Book with the Gospel. This material draws on talks he has given for over twenty years to people in recovery and those close to them, as well as to those who counsel people recovering from or living with an addiction.
Richard offers encouragement and inspiration to survive the tidal wave of compulsive behavior and addiction by learning to “breathe under water.”
We will discuss the book and how to put it’s concepts into practice as well as watching videos of Father Richard’s teaching on the subject.
You can read a review of the book here.
On Friday and Saturday, April 3rd and 4th, many of the women of our church spent the weekend at Duncan Conference Center for a retreat on prayer. They watched a movie, “The Letter Writer,” talked about prayer, walked the labyrinth, and spent time getting to know one another. Special thanks to Janet Lisle who organized and facilitated the retreat.
On Saturday morning April 11, 2015, you are invited to join us in our second group gleaning day of the year with C.R.O.S. Ministries. Gleaning is the ancient, biblical practice of picking produce from a field that has already been harvested. Less than grocery-store-perfect peppers, cucumbers, and corn are picked, boxed and distributed to the hungry in Palm Beach County. We will not know until the week before where we will be gleaning. If you are interested in participating, contact Ginny Somerville, Janet Lisle, or email us to let us know you will be participating.
