  • Be still and cool in your own mind and spirit from your own thoughts, and then you will feel the principle of God to turn your mind to the Lord God, from whom life comes; whereby you may receive his strength and power to allay all blusterings, storms, and tempests. ~ George Fox

    Today, there will be a workshop entitled “Bringing our Differences into the Light.” This workshop has been designed to practice listening to one another, and understanding one another before speaking/responding.

Mid-afternoon, the Trustees will hold an Open House for the neighbors to see our project, and in the evening, the Financial Peace University will return for another session, starting at 5:00 pm.
