"Soup Bowl" Pot-Luck Lunch with Beth

Beth invites anyone interested to join in an informal lunch of soup and anything else, on this Super-Bowl Sunday. This will be completely pot-luck and ad-hoc. There will be no sign-ups or committees involved. Come, bring some food to eat (and maybe to share), and we’ll find supplies as we need them. We’ll ask the Fellowship Hosts to leave some coffee and lemon aid for us, and we’ll find our way to a time of visiting and enjoying the day. The only request is that some people plan to stay and help clean up.

“Faith and Forgiveness, How They Affect Your Life” with David Tillman

Come explore how our faith and our ability to forgive affect the lives we live. Faith, our belief and trust in God, others, and ourselves, is shaped in our childhood and reshaped throughout our lives. How can forgiveness heal relationships, allow us to let go of anger, resentment and blame, and find peace in any situation?
