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

Greetings Friends,

Green Fair preparations are upon us!  Donations are starting to roll in and so the volunteers for all of the "departments" are busy busy busy!  If you are not currently helping out with a specific area, we urge you to contact Michael Gorra or Hans van Tartwijk or one of the chairs of the various areas to offer your services. 

Especially needed are helpers for the tag sale sorting and setup.  Contact Michelle Gorra.

Bakers needed for pies and other goodies.  Contact Linda Frank.

And donations - especially live and silent auction items.  Really good stuff. 

Of course, we'd love to see you at church this Sunday for the service Anne-Marie has crafted around safety and sanctuary.  Come for some comfort and rest to recharge for the week ahead!

The June issue of the Judea Journal - our monthly newsletter - is now available by clicking HERE.  Past issues can be found in our archive

May you be showered with blessings,

Karen Esslinger
