Learning is fun. Learning together is better than double the enjoyment. Some folks gather on Sundays after church service. Others gather on Wednesdays to study the Bible. Recently we studied about Jonah (of "big whale" fame).
During Lent we joined 10,000 others around the world in playing Lent Madness. Each day we voted for our personal favorite saint. Each Sunday we compared notes, and marveled over the many unexpected and inspirational saints we came to know.
Martha (the woman who stayed in the kitchen working while Jesus visited) won the Lent Madness contest this year. Did you know that when she was not in the kitchen she was slaying dragons.? Way cool!
Children from the church and the community gather for a week of learning Christian teachings in the context of fun and games.
Prayer Bears live in the church until one is needed. They absorb the prayers in the air and the peace of God's love. If you know someone who needs a bit of extra love, take a bear and give it away.
