Selma Sunday   March 8, 2015, 10:00  AM

Faith, Justice, and the Power of Love

On March 8, 1965, faith leaders across the country received an urgent telegram from Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. calling for them to come to Selma, Alabama, in response to the horrific events the previous day on the Edmund Pettus Bridge.   In the ensuing weeks, thousands responded.

Faith leaders today–from many different religions–have been an integral part of the “Black Lives Matter” movement, working to affirm the inherent worth of every person—especially those deemed less important by society.

Norman Stafford will lead us in the observance of “Selma Sunday”

This is also peanut butter Sunday for the Helping neighbors Food Pantry.  You may bring your donations of peanut butter or other nourishing non-perishable food.  In February we donated 92 pounds of food and eight people volunteered their time.

The 11:45 Adult RE will be “Introduction to Buddhism”.
