THIS WEEK AT ST. JOHN’S: Sunday, October 11 – Laity Sunday. Several members will share what it means to them for St. John’s to obtain the UCC “Open and Affirming” designation.
From the October Enlightener: “On Monday evening, October 12th at 8:00 pm, St. John’s Church Council will engage in a process that will enable us, by consensus, to move forward and claim the Open and Affirming designation. Reaching a consensus does not mean that every person around the table is in exactly the same place on the journey, but rather that we are all in agreement that we will move forward together and with God’s help live into what it means to be a people who embody the familiar words “No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.”” All members are invited to be part of this historic meeting in the Assembly Hall.
