ICA Ingathering

Our monthly Ingathering for ICA is today. The theme for May is Cinco de Mayo: Rice, dried and canned beans, taco and enchilada kits, spices, canned tomatoes, corn, jalapenos, olives, chilies, hot sauce and salsas. Remember the heavier the items, the better! Please buy some extra non-perishables for your donation or you may write a check with ICA in the memo line.

Natives and Church Resources

Anna Redsand promised to share some additional resources for those who were interested in reading more about the relationship of the church with Native Peoples as well as efforts for de-colonizing Christianity. Below is the list she provided.

  • Buffalo Shout, Salmon Cry: Conversations on Creation, Land Justice, and Life Together. Steve Heinrichs, Ed. Herald Press, 2013.

  • Pentecost – the Gospel in Many Languages on June 3rd

    As is our tradition at St. David’s, on June 3rd at the 9:30 service, we will be reading the Gospel on The Day of Pentecost in many languages to audibly recreate the scene at the Tower of Babel. This year, we will ALL read the Gospel together from our seats. We’d LOVE for some of you to read in different languages, and to facilitate this, we will have the translations available in the Narthex for you to pick up on that morning. Don’t speak a different language? TRY IT ANYWAY - there will be so much noise, no one will hear you! The goal is to have a throng of sound. Still not convinced? There are English versions for you to choose from as well. PLEASE JOIN US!

    To celebrate the fire of the Spirit, plan to wear flame colors, especially Red, Orange, and Yellow.
