Join Me Friday Night For a Ceasefire Night Walk

Dear LABC,

If you would like to join  a group of Lakeshoreians and me at the Ceasefire Night Walk on Friday (the 26th) I will be leaving from LABC at 6:00. The walk begins at 6:30 at At Thy Word Ministries-Church of God in Christ, 8915, International Blvd. Let me know if you plan to meet me at LABC.

I just got off the phone with Jan Scott. She reported the sad news that John Burke, longtime Oakland First Baptist Church and First Congregational Church of Berkeley Choral Director/Organist died yesterday at his home in Asheville, North Carolina. John also taught at both ABSW and PSR. There will be a memorial service on the West Coast later in the year. Prayers of gratitude for his ministry and prayers of comfort for his family and friends.

At the Soul Food Dinner on Sunday there will be an opportunity to write letters to San Mateo County leaders asking them to insure that the water supply to Redwood Glen Camp and Conference Center is not cut off.  Contact me for more information about the situation.

Prayers for all as the week draws to a close,

Jim H.
