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 June 8

Friends,

     If you missed last Sunday, you missed quite a lovely Annual Youth Service!  Maddie Gorra, our graduating senior this year, led the "children's sermon" with a supporting cast of many of our youth group members.  It was an "intro to youth group" ostensibly for the younger Sunday School set but also gave the adults in the sanctuary a taste of what our youth group is all about.  It still makes me smile when I think of it.  And then Maddie gave the "adult" sermon directed to youth groupers and adults.  I was so impressed that I asked her for a copy to print in the summer Journal.  So if you did not have the priveledge of being there for the service, you can at least read the text in a few weeks.

     This Sunday's service will feature our Chancel Choir and the final week focusing on our faith practice of "Experiencing Beauty."  Come for some inspiration and upliftment to start your week!  Teen Talk and Confirmation Class will both have their last session of the year before a summer break. 

     Next Sunday is our annual River Service and Strawberry Shortcake Social.  You can catch the details and read all the rest of the announcements by reading the right sidebar in its entirety...

May the rest of your week be filled with peace and joy!
