“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.”
The Visioning Scripture for the month of October is: Acts 8, verses 26-40. After reading ask yourself: (1) how does God give vision in this scripture to God’s people? and (2) how might God give our church vision for the future?
Our next congregational Vision meeting will be on Sunday, October 23, during coffee hour after worship.
Starting October 26, 2pm at C’est la vie Bistro
