Happening at St. John's
New Yoga Class: The yoga ministry at St John's is offering a new class on breathing, titled "With Sighs Too Deep for Words." We will combine insights from pranayama, the yogic practice of breathing and the teaching of the Apostle Paul on the intercessory work of the Holy Spirit in prayer, Romans 8. The only requirement for the class is that one can breathe, and a desire to breathe with a deeper sense of communion. The class is taught by James Hilden-Minton, our community yoga teacher, with guest, Crispin Ilombe who will offer special teachings from the Jesuit tradition. We will meet each Sunday in July and August from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. Other St John's yoga ministry classes continue at their regular times: Community Yoga Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m. and Gentle Yoga Tuesday mornings at 11 a.m.
Smart Lunch, Smart Kid: In cooperation with Action Ministries, St. John's will participate again in Smart Lunch, Smart Kid, a program provides nearly one million children throughout Georgia with bagged lunches during their summer break. We will assemble lunches on June 26, July 10, and July 24 after worship. We'll need item donations and volunteers to assemble as well as deliver the meals. To find out more, contact our outreach chair.
Building an Inclusive Church workshop, July 22-23 in Birmingham: Are you interested in helping to build Reconciling in Christ (RIC) congregations? If so, the Building an Inclusive Church workshop is for you. Building an Inclusive Church focuses on ways to create dialogue, building relationships rather than sparking debate and division.
The workshop will be held Friday evening, July 22 and all day July 23 at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church in Birmingham, Alabama. For more information or to register click here.
