We will continue this Sunday, May 13, with our discussion of  the book Life Together, by Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Bonhoeffer was a Lutheran pastor in Germany during the Nazi era, and participated in the resistance against the regime. He was particularly known as a founder of the Confessing Church, an illegal Protestant body that broke away from the state church when it was taken over by Nazism. He was executed by the Nazis in 1945, just two weeks before American troops liberated the concentration camp in which he was held. Bonhoeffer wrote the book Life Together for the communities of that church, and particularly for their seminaries. Copies of the book can be purchased for less than $10 at Amazon.com and most other bookstores. Links to a couple of sites where it is available:

New Website! We have a new website, which is now up and running, and will be updated with fresh content on a regular basis. Pastor Aimee has started blogging there, and is now posting sermons there weekly, as well as an archive of selected past sermons. You are invited to sign up to have an email sent to you with all of the updates, automatically! Eventually, this will replace the Friday Update emails, and you will be able to find the latest information on what’s happening at Peace, all in one easy-to-use place. The address hasn’t changed, it is still at peacebewithyou.org.

On May 19th, there will be a mini-retreat to plan our congregational life for the Pentecost season. If you are involved in any of the congregation’s on-going ministries, such as worship, music, education, quilters, etc., or are interested in becoming involved, please join us from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. Light refreshments will be provided.
