Worship and Arts update
Last summer’s “August on Broadway” was so much fun, we decided to do another series this year. Starting July 10, our sermon themes will be children’s stories that were special to us. What did we learn? Have they stood the test of time? Talk to Marilyn if you’d like to reserve a date to tell us about your most memorable children’s book. The next Worship & Arts meeting will be after worship on Sunday, July 10.
Quote of the week
“God is not a Christian, God is not a Jew, or a Muslim, or a Hindu, or a Buddhist. All of those are human systems which human beings have created to try to help us walk into the mystery of God. I honor my tradition, I walk through my tradition, but I don't think my tradition defines God, I think it only points me to God.”
