HOUSE NEWS: Scripture starts, need vols, Roundtable speaker and more

Dear friends,

For a complete schedule for the week, click here.

SCRIPTURE STUDY: This Tuesday, September 15, from 4:30-6pm, we’ll begin our regular weekly Scripture study. We’ll look at the gospel of Luke this fall. We approach scripture a little differently at the GCW then you might be used to

in your churches. For a little overview of what we do, read this.

REGULAR VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED FOR CAFE: We have a nice group of regular volunteers for the Wednesday cafe, especially between 9am and noon, and then again after 2pm thru close. We could REALLY use a couple of regular volunteers anytime between 11:30am and about 2:30pm. If you can give an hour or two during this part of the cafe, it would be a great help. Thanks!

…SO MANY ISSUES, SO LITTLE TIME: This Thursday we’re happy to have with us Diane Lopez Hughes, an activist from Springfield, Illinois and national council member with Pax Christi USA. Diane did 45 days in jail for an action of civil disobedience at the School of the Americas 2 years ago and she is very involved with environmental issues. her topic for the evening is: “…So Many Issues, So Little Time: Making sense of all the work of social justice and fitting it care-fully into our finite lives.” We hope you can join us! It is a potluck dinner so bring something to share if you can!

GATOR GAMEDAYS: On football Saturdays, we’re inviting friends who might not have anywhere else to enjoy a game on television or who are looking for company for the game to watch with us the Blue House. We try to provide a little atmosphere for the games, so if you or your group would ever want to help us host, we’d love the help. We’re thinking something like sandwiches or snacks (nachos, etc) and so on. We’re open to ideas so let us know!

NOT COLD YET, BUT WE COULD USE A FEW BLANKETS: Even though the weather hasn’t yet changed, we’re getting a handful of requests for blankets and we’re virtually out. If you have old blankets going unused around your house, feel free to drop them off at the house anytime.

In peace,
