Create Your Own 4th Sunday Action
Some folks like to take 4th Sunday to develop connections with brothers and sisters by attending another church in their neighborhood or gathering others to share a meal or help a neighbor in community. What is a way that you feel nudged to express God's love and acceptance and seek the "welfare of the community?"

 You also may want to take time to meditate on Luke 17:1-21.  Where have you recently experienced the power of forgiveness?  How are forgiveness and gratitude connected?  Spend some time reflecting on what it means that "the kingdom of God is among us" (17:21).

No Open Mic as it was held last week. Next open mics : Monday, July 10th and Sunday, July 23.  6:30 p.m.
