SUMMER BOOK CLUB STARTS JUNE 27TH
Our Summer Book Club selection is “The Book of Joy”. In 2015, Bishop Desmond Tutu went to India to celebrate the 80th birthday of the Dalai Lama. Together they spent a week writing what they term “a birthday present for the world”. Here are two men who have experienced tremendous loss and yet are two of the most joyful people on the planet. What is their secret? Shared with much intimacy and humor they talk about what constitutes true joy as well as the obstacles we encounter that keep us from experiencing it. We will meet 7-8 Tuesdays, 7:00 at Beaver’s house. Call if you have questions 206-246-5709. The book is available on Amazon.
With the support of our Witness in Action commission, Southminster is exploring service opportunities with our neighborhood school across the street. This is a chance for our church to serve our immediate community and build relationships with our closest neighbors. One of our first opportunities is to help with their school carnival on Friday, June 2, from 6:00-9:00 p.m. The leadership of the school PTSA has invited us to participate by signing up on their volunteer website http://signup.com/go/KgoEC3. You may click on his link to see the many types of jobs we could do during one of their hour-long shifts. This is a simple way for us as a church to get to know some of our neighbors and demonstrate our care for our community as followers of Christ. If you have questions, contact Jane Davis or Ken Onstot.
