Discussion:

  • Debbie led us in a discussion of Katharine Hayhoe’s last short video: “It is Not Too Late.” 

Joys and Concerns:

  • Our hearts are heavy with pain and anger at the news of another shooting targeting LGBTQ+ people, this one at Club Q in Colorado Springs.  Prayers for those who lost their lives, those who were injured, all those who are traumatized.
  • The Church Narrative Project was powerful for those who listened in on Zoom, and especially powerful for those who were able to attend in person.  Hopefully, more shared stories will lead to a shared future for the church in our region and beyond.
  • Phil Campbell and his wife, Teresa, have RSV.  Their young grandbaby is also recovering from RSV and the flu. 
  • Lisa had a pretty good visit with her dad, so she is feeling hopeful that more visits and important conversation will happen in the future.
  • Tory’s sister, Cookie, isn’t feeling very well today.
  • Cheryl begins her new position as interim regional minister for the Central Rocky Mountain Region on November 21, but she went to Pueblo this weekend to be with Joan Bell-Haynes and the people of Park Hill Christian Church as they closed their ministry.  Phil Campbell reported that the closing worship service included a baby dedication, a very hopeful sign of resurrection.   
  • Tory reports that recycling in Denver apartment residences takes effect in June.
  • Bruce is recovering from his rotator cuff surgery and is able to tolerate more time without his arm in a sling.
