"There is an intellectual desire, an eros of the mind. Without it there would arise no questioning, no inquiry, no wonder." Bernard Lonergan

"It seems clear that humans cannot significantly reduce or mitigate the dangers inherent in their use of life by ccumulating more information or better theories or by achieving greater predictability or more caution in their scientific and industrial work. To treat life as less than a miracle is to give up on it." Wendell Berry

"Do not be afraid, my little flock, for it is the Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." Luke 12:32

On June 8 at WMPC we will welcome Alex Evans, Roy Cooper, and Sandra Wartski to our church to lead us in a colloquium, a conversation - guided by prayer and faithfulness about violence, mental health, community, and policy.

I am hopeful and prayerful that it will be a fine day.

I am hopeful and prayerful that those who come will be invigorated, enlightened, and better informed about the stains of violence and shootings which are plaguing our current national moment.

As I said in our newsletter last week - I am convinced that God, and our Savior, are left broken-hearted when the children of God murder one another.

I hope we will rise to the challenge of discussion solutions to the disease, instead of turning a deaf ear and contributing to the problem.

Here is a link to the website with all the information.


Please come and join us.
