Alive in Jesus

John the Baptist spoke truth to power, and Herod had him beheaded. In Herod’s fear that Jesus is John returned from the dead, we may hear hope for the oppressed: that all the prophets killed through the ages are alive in Jesus. We are called to witness to justice in company with them.

Thursday, July 19 from 5-8:30 pm

Burrows Park on Lake Mendota, just off Sherman Avenue
Did you know Lake Edge Lutheran is a member of MOSES? MOSES is the Dane County branch of a very effective prison-reform organization that has branches all over the country and the State of Wisconsin. MOSES does great work in helping draw attention to and affect legislation on criminal justice issues.

MOSES has meetings once a month with extremely interesting programs. But this month, MOSES is having a potluck picnic at Burrows Park on Lake Mendota, just off Sherman Avenue. You’re invited to enjoy a weekday evening family picnic with MOSES at the park on Thursday, July 19 from 5-8:30 pm. There is a requested donation to help offset costs and serve as a minor fundraiser. Fun children’s activities will occur!

Look here to find the invitation and sign up!
