Reveal God's Glory

The glory of God is often revealed when and where it is least expected. God uses our lips to declare that glory, inexperienced and hesitant though they may be. God uses our love to demonstrate that glory and so urges us to exercise it. God uses Jesus of Nazareth, water and the word, bread and wine, to reveal God’s glory where and when God chooses. Take heed, lest the glory of God slip through our midst unnoticed.

February 3: “One-to-One Conversations” Join Jerry Buss in learning about one-to-one conversations and how we might use them at Lake Edge Lutheran. A one-to-one is a type of intentional conversation that has roots in community organizing. It is an opportunity to establish a deeper relationship with another person through hearing the person’s story, passions, hopes and interests.

This is a FREE presentation by MOSES organizer Frank Davis with a question and answer session, small group discussions and a solitary cell replica. A light lunch is included.
Did you know?
Fact 1: RACIAL INEQUITY - though they make up only 7% of the population, African Americans comprise 46% of the incarcerated population
Fact 2: CRIMELESS REVOCATION - approximately 3,000 people annually are sent to prison for violating a rule of their supervision and no new law is broken.
Fact 3: IMPACT ON FAMILIES - It has been well documented that children whose parents are incarcerated are more likely to become incarcerated themselves. Furthermore, if this trend continues, 1 in 3 black children born today will experience incarceration.
This event is organized by St. Paul A.M.E. and Unity Churches. For more info contact Saundra Brown @ 608-332-8349
