This is a big week in the life of this congregation. Tonight begins our week of hosting 45 or so people without permanent, reliable shelter during these winter months as part of NEST (Norfolk Emergency Shelter Team). I will have the honor of welcoming them and offering grace for the evening meal. The rest of the week, I plan to join our volunteers at the bus stop in downtown Norfolk. Thank you to Julie Hurst and Ann Denton, and all the other NEST volunteers who make this happen.
Don’t forget to sign up for the Compassionate Communication workshop this Saturday, Feb 8 from 9 to 2. We’ll have coffee and check in at 9, and class will begin promptly at 9:30 and should end by 2. Lunch will be served. Do come. Sign up here. https://signup.com/client/invitation2/secure/3144430/false#/invitation
This Sunday, our workshop leader Rev. Carlton Smith will lead worship with me. It’s going to be a great day. Look forward to seeing you all soon.
