Unity is Strength, Division is Weakness
We are very pleased to present an evening for peacemaking, fellowship, community building, and learning…one bite at a time. On Saturday evening, January 27th, St. Andrew is honored to welcome Fathia Absie and Ilays Aden and their friends who will host a dinner, conversation and program for our community.
Why do we want to do this? We’ll let the Eat With Muslims website speak to the goal:
In an atmosphere of increasing hate and intolerance, we must become a greater and proactive force for compassion and understanding. The Eat with Muslims (EWM) project is a grass-roots movement to help aggressively counter misperceptions of Muslims. We live in an age where neighbors don’t get to know one another anymore, making it easy for preconceived notions to thrive. We are committed to building bridges between people of different cultures and faiths, bringing them together over delicious food and fostering dialogue. This project is designed to give the American Muslim community the chance to reach out and take charge of their narrative. We believe that eating together and sharing our stories is what will strengthen and enrich our country and our values.
We couldn’t have said it better! Reserve your spots today (seating is very limited, so we're asking that you limit your reservations to those seats you'll definitely use--click on the image above to go to the BrownPaperTIckets.com site).
it's that time...
It’s time for our annual pastor review process. Input from the staff, elders and congregation members is collected by the Personnel Committee and provided to the Session in a written summary and report. If you would like to participate, you may use the attached form in the newsletter and return it to Dan Clawson’s box in the office, or send by email to email@example.com by January 25th. But wait!
Since you're here already, head over to our pastor review page and just do your review online. You can click on the links for position descriptions for Scott, Maggie, and Julie Kae; answer the questions that you want, click "submit," then just refresh and repeat. It's quick and easy, and remember: You can call Dan at 206-595-1795 or email if you have any questions.
