On January 28, 1958 the women of this community of faith officially formed the “Prince of Peace Women’s Guild.” The leadership of women in this congregation has taken many forms over the past six decades but it has remained a constant part of our identity and integral in living out our calling to be the church. As another commemoration of our 60th Anniversary Year, join us for worship Sunday, January 28, 2018 as we celebrate the innumerable contributions the women of this congregation have made.
Pastor Sonja Hagander will be our guest preacher this morning. A ‘daughter of the congregation,’ Sonja currently serves as the University Pastor and Director of Ministries at Augsburg University in Minneapolis, MN. In this role she brings a deep passion for helping young adults explore Christian vocation and creating lives of faith and service. She has also led several interfaith initiatives at Augsburg, the ELCA’s most diverse college. In that context, she plans and leads worship each week in a challenging but very energizing urban multi-faith community.
Sonja will also be leading our Adult Forum between services this morning featuring an interactive session on women and gender issues based on the new book “Faith in Action,” which will be available.
“Faith in Action will deepen your perspective on important issues—from racial justice to environmental concerns, from LGBTQIA equality to Native people’s rights, from women’s equality to disability rights, from mass incarceration to immigration—so that when you step out into the world to be an activist, advocate, and ally, you’ll have the tools and confidence you need.
Created by contributors with varied experiences in activism, faith, policy, and social change, Faith in Action is the book for you if you are ready to make a real difference.”
