  • 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 weak, and the afraid

Discussion:

  • Today’s discussion was led by Lisa and Richard as they brought us the ideas from chapter 13, “Religion That Kills:  A Sermon in Response to the Pulse Massacre,” and chapter 14, “When Our Thoughts and Prayers Turn to Ash:  Religion, Gun Violence, and America,” from Preaching as Resistance.

Joys and Concerns:

  • For Jeri and Greg.  Jeri has many more responsibilities caring for Greg now, and Greg has a great deal of anxiety. 
  • Cookie needs prayers for her cardio health.
  • Lisa shared good news on her recent medical tests.
  • Lisa says Natalee is doing better with medication change, so stress at home is subsiding.
  • Sherrill’s neck is much better; she’s still tired but has greater flexibility.
  • For Cheryl and her parents.
