In his passionate and life-changing book Forgiveness: Finding Peace Though Letting Go, bestselling author Adam Hamilton explores forgiveness in our relationship with God, with our spouses or romantic interests, with our parents and siblings, and with others in our lives.
Our four-session study in October is based on that powerful book. In each session, we’ll use stories and Scripture along with lessons from the book to shape a meaningful experience around forgiveness and letting go. You do NOT need to buy or read the book to participate.
The study happens Wednesdays starting October 6 at 7pm in the Community Room. It will also be offered as the Brown Bag Bible Study (see below) when we’ve finished our current study of Colossians.
Everyone is welcome . . . you don’t need to be a member of the church, so invite your friends!
It’s my first Annual Blessing of the Animals at Good Shepherd! We’ll gather with our four-footed companions at 3:00 on Sunday, October 10 on the church lawn. In previous Blessings of the Animals, I’ve blessed lots of dogs, a few cats, a gerbil, a gecko, and a 250 pound hog, among others of God’s creatures. There’s plenty of room on the lawn for more and different representatives of God’s creatures to join us!
Members of the congregation and the community are invited to bring their pets for a short, informal service and an individual blessing in the tradition of St. Francis of Assisi.
