  • Bon Air Trialogues - Interfaith Discussion

     

    The Bon Air Trialogues, a series of three nights of interfaith discussion will begin March 28 right here at St. Edward Church at 6:30pm.  Please come!

    We invite our neighbors from the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim congregations in Bon Air to join us for discussion. This year’s topic is “Home: Living Faith at Home, Our Houses of Worship, and RVA as Our Home.”

    The aim of the dialogue is to deepen mutual understanding and appreciation between the three Abrahamic religious communities. These communities will meet to understand each other’s traditions and build better relations. The organizers stress the importance of such dialogue because it helps appreciate our respective faiths as good neighbors and will lead to goodwill and mutual understanding and provide a model of neighborhood harmony in the region. They see these gatherings as important opportunities to address together religious, ethical, and moral issues facing the Richmond region. The organizers stress that one does not need uniformity to seek common ground.  

    HELP NEEDED!

    Our parish needs to provide light refreshments for our guests on Thursday, March 28 as eating together is an important part of the event. We ask you to please bring a dish to share when you come. If you can’t attend, please consider donating a dish to share and dropping it off at the Parish Center during the day of the 28th. We expect about 150 people so we will need lots of food! Contact Jennifer with any questions!

    The series continues April 4 at the Islamic Center and April 11 at Or Ami. Hope to see you there!

     

     
  • Stolen Checks

Church members noted missing contributions, particularly November and December, after receiving their end of the year contribution statements. PLEASE look carefully over your statement to see that all your contributions are listed. If you feel there is a discrepancy, notify the church by calling Jan Webb at 864-4704 or Diane Phillips at 864-4711.
