The Holy Monday luncheon, a first for the Monday congregation, was attended by 52 guests from the Forestville community. Many church members who are not normally involved in the Food Closet distribution, along with our regular volunteers participated in making it a success. Guests were treated to a sumptuous luncheon of roasted chicken, potato salad, green salad, rolls, drinks and dessert.

For quite a few years I have had the pleasure of serving as our church’s liaison with Sonoma County HfH, as our church has supported the home building efforts with donations of money and labor. In the last few years two homes have been built in Healdsburg, and four have been built in Sebastopol. During the past two years, two distressed sale homes in Santa Rosa, and one in Fulton have been purchased and completely renovated with the help of volunteers and the recipient families.

God made “Earthlings” in our physical lives. We are absolutely dependent upon the Earth and its life-sustaining systems. “His gift to us of the use of it…obliges us to take excellent care of it.” -Wendell Berry

As Christians, we are blessed with the awesome gift of peace from Jesus. We know at times it may be challenging to “keep our peace” due to circumstances in our lives. However, we have the Holy Bible with passages to read to help us retain peace in our souls and we also have other writings as well. Below is one of my favorite poems regarding peace that has helped me throughout the years.
