Rev. Moon’s Message for April 16, 2023

Dear friends,

Our monthly virtual book study group meets this Sunday, April 16 at 1 PM (and every third Sunday of the month). We have been studying “Devotional Classics” by Richard Foster and James Bryan Smith. This month we will discuss the work of François Fenelon (“A Will No Longer Divided”).

“Christian perfection is not so severe, tiresome, and constraining as we think.” Francois Fenelon reminds us the joy of pursuing God. Happiness is experienced when we give ourselves to God. According to the author, “What God asks of us is a will which is no longer divided between him and any creature.”

The author invites us to think about what makes us truly happy. He also invites us to think about what our faith has to do with our happiness.

On Sunday at 1 PM, join us on Zoom:  (link available from the church office or see your Tidbits).

On Friday, April 21, the monthly prayer and faith conversation group meets at the church lounge at 1 PM. The group is studying Joan Chittister’s “The Breath of the Soul: Reflections on Prayer.”

On Wednesday, April 26, we will hold a quiet prayer and communion service at the church (the last Wednesday of each month, 7:30 PM). Please, join us and deepen the sense of peace and quietness together.

—Rev. Chuck Moon
