A New Discussion                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         A nation divided, a Church divided, a house divided against itself cannot stand...in the current social and political  climate of the United States, it seems like a necessity to choose a side and stay there.  But in the Church, we are called to welcome all people.  Does all really mean everybody, even if someone is cruel or dangerous or  different?  Jenaba Waggy will lead a discussion on what it is to be a welcoming church in an unwelcome time.  Come and bring your questions  Sundays at 10:00am from July 22 to August 12 in  Room #218
