Walking to Jerusalem
e’ve walked just over 1,500,000 steps which gets us just east of Washington DC. Yes! But, we have a ways to go. So, if you haven’t turned in your steps, or you think you aren’t needed in this challenge, think again! And, please don’t leave the rest of us stranded! All movement counts; 20 minute of activity equals 2000 steps. One mile of walking or running, etc. also equals 2000 steps. Being physically healthy contributes to our spiritual health. Please leave your step count on the table in the Gathering Space, or email Terry Baker or Annie. Thank you!
Pastrix Book Club
We’ll get together on Saturday, March 5 to talk about Pastrix by Nadia Bloz-Weber. Plan on 10am, at Daily Bread, 11719 Manchester in Des Peres. Please contact Annie by email or phone to let her know you are planning on coming so she can save enough chairs. Thank you!
Nadia is a heavily-tattooed, profanity-laden ELCA (Lutheran) pastor in Colorado. She wrote this book “for people who hunger for a bit of hope that doesn't come from vapid consumerism or navel-gazing; for women who talk too loud, and guys who love chick flicks; for the gay man who loves Jesus, and won't allow himself to be shunned by the church. For people who listen to “This American Life” and have more education than money; for people who know the difference between American cheese and real cheese. In short, this book is for every thinking misfit suspicious of institutionalized religion, but who is still seeking transcendence and
A Photo-a-Day in Lent
About 24 people are part of the Photo A Day in Lent Facebook Group. Each day,
rethinkchurch provides a word, and the group members submit their pictures. It’s been fun and insightful to see everyone’s take on the words (go, mighty, injustice, celebrate, voice). Some of the pictures have been serious, and others insightful; some frivolous, and others introspective. If you’re interested in being in the group, go to Faith Des Peres’ Facebook page, and scroll down for the link to the group. Anyone can join. In fact, we’ve had people from all over join the group. You can also join the group to see the photos.
