Our focus bible
reading this Sunday is John 3:1-17.
For the next several weeks we will have readings from
the gospel of John. It includes stories and teachings not found in the other
three gospels, like this week’s story about Nicodemus. Nicodemus comes to Jesus
with some deep questions of his own. Jesus takes Nicodemus seriously and
affirmed his deep desire to know and understand. This story invites young
people to be open to the transformation that questioning can bring. In our safe
place and time together we will wonder and explore questions and doubts as
well. Questions can be triggers to dialogue. For example: Why are people hungry
when there is lots of food in the world? What is climate change? What happens
when someone dies? Some of these questions may not be easy to answer…
As I’m writing this piece for PM, preparations for our
Lock-In are in progress. We hope to
provide a safe space where our youth, clergy, volunteers and advisors have a
time to connect with each other, a time to invite friends without pressure,
just to build friendships, have lots of fun, have some spiritual stuff
and maybe some sleep.
Palm Sunday (April 13) is promised to be a blast!

On The Move Tour
members of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers are travelling through the South
on their way to Dublin, Ohio, Corporate Headquarters of Wendy’s to plead their
case for the corporation to sign up for the Fair Food Program. They will then
return to Florida, stopping in Lakeland to visit the Publix corporate
headquarters. CIW members have met with church groups and other supporters on
their journey. Let them know of your support by presenting letters to Wendy’s
managers indicating your approval of the Fair Food Program.
(Barbara Fernstrom is a
member of our churches outreach team and she has been spending time in Florida
for the winter. She learned about a situation of awful employment conditions
there in Florida and then invited our church to learn more about what we could
do to help improve living and working conditions for a community of people who
harvest a lot of produce for our supermarkets and fast food chains.)
