Deb Mundinger was one of those who traveled from Prince of Peace to Tanzania this past fall as they visited our partner congregation in the village of Bomalang’ombe. Deb always had her camera close at hand and took, literally, thousands of pictures of the groups travels throughout the country. She has now compiled many of her images and published them in a photo journal alongside some reflections from the trip. A copy of the bound journal, entitled “Bwana Asifiwe,” is available to be viewed in the library at Prince of Peace.
It’s that time of year when we take stock of the past 12 months. List writers dominate the headlines and cover any number of topics, some fun, some serious. I’d like to take stock of just a few of the blessings of my year, serving alongside all of you in ministry here at Prince of Peace.
How are we letting God dwell in God’s House? How are we dwelling inside, and outside, of Prince of Peace? As those who first worshipped in this space dreamt, planned, welcomed, adorned and dwelt of how to be God’s servants are we, too, still dreaming, planning, welcoming, adorning and dwelling? If we are not active in God’s service, what is the point of being a church? How can each of us use our gifts in Gods’ service, both, at church and in our everyday world?
Sunday Adult Forum during the month of January will feature the founders of Do Good Roseville, two weeks and ‘Religion and Disability’ plus the start of a series on feminist topics to help usher in our celebration of 60 years of women in ministry at Prince of Peace.
We continue to distribute weekend food at both Central Park Elementary and Roseville Area Middle School. We need to fill up our volunteer slots for the rest of this school year.
