Five years ago Rabbi Mark Biller joined a session of an EfM Class (Education for Ministry) here at Grace to discuss Midrash. Midrash is the literary genre of stories that fill in the gaps in Holy Scripture and ask and answer questions raised by the biblical texts. In our final session of the School for Christian Practice offering, What Are You Not Telling Me, Rabbi Biller will join us once again as cohost with Dr. Park. Please join in the zoom on Monday, May 10 at 5:30 PM!
The Friends of Music committee wants to build on the success of our previous program years and, with your support, looks forward to hosting a number of great in-person concerts and services for the 2021-2022 program year.
If you would like to contribute to the annual Friends of Music fundraising campaign, please return your donation via mail, offering plate, or online by the end of May. Letters and donation cards were mailed to member households in April. Additional copies can be printed at home if needed. When making an online contribution, choose check or credit card then select “Friends of Music” as the contribution type. Contact our Director of Music, Will Gotmer, if you have any questions.
Sacred Ground is a film-based dialogue series on race, grounded in our faith, and its call to faith, hope and love. The ten-part course is built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latino and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories. The series is open to all, and especially designed to help white people talk with other white people and peel away the layers that have contributed to the challenges and divides of the present day.
