Change Ourselves, Change the World

“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. ... We need not wait to see what others do.”  
- Mahatma Gandhi

Judea Weekly eNews for January 12 - Honoring Martin Luther King

Dear Friends,

     On Sunday, Scott Tilden will be delivering a multi-media sermon on the work of Rev. Martin Luther King and how we can honor his spirit.  Join us in the Parish House for this inspiring service and then some refreshment and fellowship. 

    Meeting House without pews or carpet The renovations in the Meeting House are progressing nicely!  The space is already looking radically different.  Yesterday, the old carpet was coming up after the pews had already been removed.  Feel free to stop in from time to time but I do plan to share some snapshots of the work in progress.

     If you were at the worship service this past Sunday and heard an update on Hans van Tartwijk, you might want to know how you might send him some words of encouragement and friendship.  His birthday is coming up on February 6 and it would be great if he could get lots of birthday cards from friends.  Mail takes just about 2 weeks to deliver there so plan accordingly.  Please contact the church office for the mailing address or check the Sunday bulletin, where it will be printed weekly.

     It IS mid-winter but there are still some things happening around here!  Check the announcements on the right for some upcoming events and activities.

Blessings to all!
