Friends:

 “There may be tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they may seem invincible but in the end, they always fail.  Think of it:  always.”  (Mahatma Gandhi – assassinated January 30, 1948….the year after the British peacefully transferred power to an independent India and left)

 Partnership Sunday:  This Sunday we get to celebrate with our friends in Venda, South Africa and Laurel Galan, Nicaragua our partnership and commitment to the Gospel.  Lovely music, new stories and fresh perspectives are coming your way!

 Our Annual Meeting is scheduled for February 10 after worship.  Pick up copies of the Annual Report, Budget and proposed By-Law changes this Sunday.  Your review ‘in advance’ will be helpful.

 Mardi Gras Party!  On February 10 the Horn Section of the SF Gay and Lesbian Band (aka – The Dixieland Dykes) will join us for worship and a celebration of Mardi Gras at 5:00 pm that evening.  This will be a Potluck – and you are encouraged to bring any Cajun dish…..or any food you enjoy eating …….to this event.  It’s a time to relax, enjoy good friends and great music!  Of course you can invite friends from beyond the congregation as well.

 Please keep in your prayers:  Nancy, Melinda, Ed, Don Smith, Jonathan, Lisa, Spoon and all who pray for us.
