March 2016 Newsletter << PDF Version
What marks this time of year for you? Lent? Primary elections? Spring?
However you prioritize your time in the month of March, I know that you’ll find many articles in this edition of PullenNews to enrich your life. Thank you to the many people who contributed articles to this publication and to the many ways you are out spreading peace and justice in the world.
In this edition, you’ll find details about the Finlator Lecture series coming up on April 22-24. We’re quite honored to have guest speaker Imam Abdullah Antepli. At this time in the history of the church and our nation, there may not be a more relevant and urgent prophetic voice to hear than that of Imam Antepli. You’ll enjoy a cover-page article from Nancy Petty introducing him.
You’ll also find information about where to pick up your pictorial directory, who to remember in your prayers, an invitation to join us for Maundy Thursday dinner and service, how to help with Habitat for Humanity, and an update about a joint committee that will develop Pullen’s plan for addressing homelessness on our property.
Also tune in for information about some powerful opportunities to engage in conversations such as:
- Race Talks: The Journey Forward
- Race, Power & Privilege
- Bearing Courage: Rooted in Hope
- The Future of Church/State Separation
- What I believe about the Bible, Part III
- The Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP)
I hope you enjoy this collection of news items from your fellow Pullenites. It continues to be a pleasure to compile the monthly PullenNews.
