Pastor’s Weekly Message: 05.30.14

Friends:

Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget

falls drop by drop upon the heart

until, in our own despair,

against our will,

comes wisdom

through the awe filled grace of God.”

—Aeschylus, Greek playwright

Brock Klobe has graduated from Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary—Congratulations, Brock!  A wonderful celebration was held last Friday at Peace with Brock’s parents.  Brock’s dad reported at the conclusion of the weekend celebrations, “My favorite thing we did while on the graduation trip was attending the Peace Party.”  Thanks to all who shared in and provided for the evening.

This Sunday our Forum will focus on Children’s Advocacy. Members of Peace have been working on behalf of children in multiple areas (hunger, sex trafficking, health issues and more).  Join in this conversation to learn more about what we might do.

Jazz Church West:  This Sunday at 5:00 pm will conclude our 9th Season celebrating the Human Voice with Clairdee and Dmitri Methany.  Joining them will be the Pacific Choir and Coelis Ensemble to perform our Jazz Theme Song “Sing Out!” composed in honor of Jazz at Peace.
