A Messaage From Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño

8/19/2017

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be children of your Father in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet only your brothers and sisters, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Matthew 5:43-48 (NRSV)
 
I was stunned, sickened and saddened by what happened last Saturday in Charlottesville, VA. Before us for all the world to see was that moment of extreme conflict between White supremacists and counter protestors.
 
I was watching the news and thinking, “This is what happens in Nairobi, in Nice, in London, but not in Charlottesville, VA.” But of course, it does happen here as well. Do we ever learn? In Charlottesville, in London, in Nice, in Nairobi, in Barcelona, do we ever learn?

Art Class

Learn new artistic skills or  improve your artistic skills. 

A new Art Class is beginning at Memorial on January 6th, at 6 pm, instructed by Roberto Carlos. Meet in the Library.

art-management“Drop ins” are welcome, so you can come the weeks that fit your schedule. The supplies are provided, and each participant is asked to drop $2 in the “replenishing can” each week they are present. The class is recommended for people in junior high and older, though some who are younger than that may also enjoy this opportunity. It is a no-stress way to unwind at the end of a work-week! Invite your family, friends and neighbors to join you in developing visual artistic expression – it will be fun for all who gather!
