NewsLook for the red comma at our Life & Faith table

Ever wonder how others navigate the day-to-day of following Jesus?  How does your life intersect with (collide with) your faith?

Life & Faith is a monthly opportunity to have those conversations over a glass of your favorite refreshment.  We bring our questions and our stories, getting ideas from each other.  Jane Smith, the convener, brings a back up question if needed to get us started.

November 1 we’ll gather on the patio of Transfer Co. Food Hall.  (If it is frigid or raining, we’ll gather inside; look for the sunken table area about midway through the main floor of the hall.)  Those who want dinner or a beverage should arrive by 6:30 to buy your own.  Conversation runs 7-8PM.  You’ll find us at the table with our Life & Faith comma.  Friends are welcome!

We have two guidelines – What is said at Life & Faith stays there AND we tip generously.

November’s back up question if no one brings one to discuss

CUCC will be discerning some important things together at our two congregational meetings Nov. 6 and 13.  We love and trust one another – that’s a given.  We know God will be with us, Spirit leading us.  Still, the conversation may have its moments as we try to figure out together what God is calling us to do.  Meanwhile, It is election season AND also visiting family season – times when conflict with those we love crops up.  Jesus said:  “But I say to you who are listening: Love your enemies; do good to those who hate you; bless those who curse you; pray for those who mistreat you.”  I suspect Jesus is saying something about conflict amongst loved ones, too.  So here’s my back up question:

In the midst of the tense moments, how might we embody love, doing good, blessing, and praying for those with whom we disagree over important things that we really care about?  How might we support one another in preparation and in the moment?  Do you have a story of one of your “saints” who showed you a way to be “Love in the midst of…”?

If you would like to receive the email reminder with the back up question, contact Jane Smith at smithjeg@mindspring.com.
