On Sunday night we gathered at a statue where guns had been made into public art, and heard God's promises through Isaiah. Swords into ploughs, spears into pruning hooks. This senseless violence must stop!
Last night 140 community members came together to learn more about the Sanctuary movement and responding to the needs of our neighbors and community members, especially the most vulnerable. We heard from Edith Espinal, currently in Sanctuary in Columbus, Ohio. Pictured here is Lana Heath de Martinez, who works with the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy.
Day 2: a Super Co-Mod team, inspiration from Rick Ufford-Chase, Montreat beauty, and a very special treat. David LaMotte, JMU class of '90, took time to have dinner with us!
It's a beautiful morning at Montreat!
It's beginning to look a lot like Advent!
We appreciate and stand in solidarity with the workers in our local poultry plants.
Join us at Trinity for Advent and Christmas!
Prayers for the world and 26 stones for Sutherland.
