Opportunities:

Discussion:

  • Darryl Searuggs, Christine Campbell, and Donna Greene from the CRMR Reconciliation Ministry joined us today.  The work of Reconciliation Ministry is being reintroduced to the region.  To begin, they are conducting listening tours to determine people’s ideas, hopes, concerns, etc.  Christine recommended Healing Racial Divides by Terrell Carter.  An online book club may be organized, as well as workshops, anti-racism training events, and summer camp curriculum.  More details to come!         

Joys and Concerns:

  • Sherrill is hospitalized at Aurora Regional Medical Center.
  • Sherrill’s great niece, Ember, is now in stable condition and in the burn care unit.
  • Lisa is not going to California or China but hoping for another fun vacation locally.
  • Lisa has applied for a wonderful, new job opportunity.
  • Cheryl has two more Sundays at Evergreen.  A long-time friend from Utah is coming to Evergreen to hear her preach her last sermon!
  • Richard is joyful on this International Women’s Day that he raised two strong women!
  • Kristen and Steve closed on a new house in Castle Rock!
  • Prayers for those affected by COVID-19.  Richard is grateful for better communication about the coronavirus than had been given around other pandemics in the past. 
  • Prayers for those in Nashville and surrounding areas as they recover from tornado damage and personal loss.
