  • to educate ourselves and others about our life with undocumented people, refugees, and immigrants and to provide assistance as much as possible
  • to address issues of health care, disabilities, and special needs children
  • to work for human rights for all people, including Muslims, Jews, other minority religious groups, women, LGBTQ+, and more
  • to remain committed to the poor, the hungry, the homeless, people with mental health issues, the uneducated, the powerless, and those who are afraid

Joys and Concerns:

  • It’s a joy to participate in Pride Fest on June 25-26 with local O&A churches, Cairn, South Broadway, Evergreen, and our Central Rocky Mountain Regional Church.  Planning details continue!
  • Cheryl concluded her interim ministry with Evergreen Christian Church this morning.  Brandon Proffitt begins serving there next week.
  • Gregory is off chemotherapy and beginning an oral medication this week.  He is doing well and very encouraged.
  • Janet is spending lots of time with her family as they continue to observe Orthodox Jewish traditions that honor her father’s life and grieve his death.
  • Max reports that he’s been “good busy” with Mt. Olive, as they have had lots going on.
  • Sherrill received a scholarship to attend a class taught by author Alexander Chi.
  • Hannah has been diagnosed with pars defect, a stress fracture in her lower spine, which is fairly common with competitive dancers.  Rest is required for healing…
  • Kathi has begun a new medication.  Cos reports Kathi is less agitated now and not falling as much, but still sleeping quite a lot.
