A time of fellowship over breakfast. There is no set agenda and everyone is welcome. Time and place to be announced each month on Facebook, weekly newsletter and in the Sunday bulletin, but usually held on the 1st Friday of the month.
God, our fears and prejudices run deep. Sometimes we can only see our own point of view. We stick with those who are like us, rarely venturing outside our comfort zones. We do not hear those crying for justice and true peace. We blame those who are suffering and in need, instead of standing by them. We deny the power of your gospel to unite us with those who are different from uys. Lord, remind us that fear and shane have no place in a heart full of your Divine Love. Work through us to open new possibilities of life for all of your people. Through Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen
