Planning is under way for our Second Annual Peace and Justice Luncheon at the Southwest Texas Annual Conference in Corpus Christi, TX June 7 – 10. The inaugural luncheon in 2011 attracted about 150 persons to hear Dr. Joerg Rieger of Perkins School of Theology. The luncheon was a cooperative effort by our MFSA chapter, the Conference Board of Church and Society, and the conference’s Reconciling Ministries Team.
Our 2012 luncheon will be on Friday, June 8 at the Convention Center in Corpus Christi. Our principal speaker will be Jim Winkler, General Secretary of the UMC General Board of Church and Society. The theme for this year’s luncheon is “Growth Through Justice”.
Our SWTX Chapter is also planning to once again sponsor an exhibit that will include MFSA information, an expanded display of the Shower of Stoles, and our traditional book fair.
We Need Your Books!
For the past few years, our MFSA chapter has been collecting gently used religious and spiritual books from our members and
friends, and offering them for sale/donation at our Annual Conference booth. We will do that again this year if we can collect enough books, so clean out your closets or shelves and bring them to chapter meetings. Or contact Rowland Curry (email@example.com) if you need for us to pick them up. The deadline is June 3.
