The Good News, According to Phil

Rev. Phil Schlaefer

Rev. Phil Schlaefer

Our family just returned from a vacation in the Washington, D.C. area. In addition to the wonderful museums and monuments there, we visited the colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown area.

To refresh your history memory, Jamestown was the first English settlement in North America. In 1607, 104 men and boys sailed over the sea to establish a new colony as a business venture.

What particularly fascinated me was the priorities set by those first colonists. Guess what was the first structure they erected.  (more…)

Thank God For Evolution
Saturday, August 1, 1-2:30 p.m.
Rev. Phil shows the second DVD on evolution, by Rev. Michael Dowd. Rev. Dowd is a former fundamentalist minister who once militantly believed that the earth was just over 5000 years old and that we were created just as we are today. He has since converted to evolution, and the age of the universe of 14 billion years. Man evolved over hundreds of thousands of years, and we’re still in the process. Stimulating stuff! Even if you missed the first DVD, you will find plenty of stimulation!

how-then-shall-we-liveFour Big Questions
Saturdays, August 8-29, 1-2:30 p.m.
At the Unity Convention, which Rev. Phil attended in June, Wayne Muller was a presenter. His latest book is How, Then, Shall We Live? In it, he invites the reader to wrestle with four questions. One is “Who am I?” Another is “What do I ?” The third is “How shall I live, knowing I will die?” And the fourth is “What is my gift to the family of the earth?”

Rev. Phil presents an exploration of each of these big questions, one per Saturday, beginning on Aug. 8, at 1 p.m. It is not necessary to purchase the book. But it is necessary to be willing to explore!

CHURCH NEWS

Office Update — One of our priorities as a Board of Trustees is to add on to the church building.  Our plans call for a Minister’s office, a small classroom, and some storage area.  We believe this can be done without incurring a debt.

The current church office is just that, an office for church use, such as accounting, using the copy machine, etc. A Minister’s office will provide privacy for counseling, Sunday Service preparation etc.

The classroom will enable us to hold two meetings at the same time, say AA and a class. Storage room is always needed, for old records, extra equipment, Christmas supplies, etc.

We’ll keep you posted as we pursue the necessary plans, contractor negotiations, etc.
