Growing Into Beloved Community
Pastor Daniel Auguste of the Eglise Baptiste Pierre Angulaire (Cornerstone Baptist Church), the Haitian congregation which shares our space at First Baptist, thanks JP Quakers for the funds we collected for members of his congregation:
"It was a great Christian gesture you made in sending to our church a
financial gift. It went to brother Lelio, who subsequently wired it to
his homeless nephew in Haiti, through Western Union. The good news is
the gift was well used; because it was used by a homeless and hungry
family of three who was affected by the earthquake, and still lives in
the streets. May God bless you and the Quakers members. In Christ, Pastor Daniel"
Please hold brother Lelio in your prayers, as he is seriously ill himself and lost other family members in Haiti.
Listening to the Divine for Guidance in Our Lives and Actions:
A Day of Extended Worship
In keeping with the Yearly Meeting theme
of Jubilee, which involves opportunities to set aside our daily work and routine and
consider how we are living our lives, Salem Quarter (our regional association) is
sponsoring a day-long extended meeting for worship on Saturday March
13th. This is an opportunity to
worship more deeply than is possible in an hour long meeting. It will be held at Wellesley Friends Meeting. For more information, visit http://www.bhfh.org/sqm/
JP Quakers meets on the second and fourth Sundays of the month. On the second Sunday, we meet for potluck at 5 p.m., followed by meeting for worship at 6 p.m. On the fourth Sunday, we meet for a nonviolence discussion circle from 5 to 7 p.m. over light refreshments.
May you be richly blessed!
