You're invited to read a good book with Johnny and enjoy a weekly discussion (whether or not you have read) based on Shalom and the Community of Creation by Rev. Dr. Randy Woodley. Randy is a professor at Portland Seminary, regenerative farmer, speaker, and author. You can get a Kindle version through Amazon . There are physical copies available through Whitworth's Office of Church Engagement. Feel free to invite others to join us! Plan on trying to read through chapter 1 by Thursday, 7/2 and meet via Zoom that day at noon. As things open up and it becomes more of an option, we'd love to also offer the opportunity to meet outdoors to experience and enjoy the community of creation together as we talk. We'll meet each Thursday through August 20th and plan to invite Randy to meet with us for one of our final gatherings together. RSVP to Johnny

Today from Bonnie Hansen
A quote from Betsie ten Boom, sister of author and speaker Corrie ten Boom, a Christian who died in a Nazi concentration camp that both sisters were inprisoned in during WW II. "The most important part of our task will be to tell everyone who will listen that Jesus is the only answer to the problems that are disturbing the hearts of men and nations. We shall have the right to speak because we can tell from our experience that his light is more powerful than the deepest darkness... How wonderful that the reality of his presence is greater than the reality of the hell about us."
Please take the time to read Psalm 146:3: "Do not put your trust in mortal men, who cannot save. And verse 5 "Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God..."
