Please pray for churches who are meeting virtually for their annual conference assemblies this month, including those in Virginia, Mountan States, South Central and Western District Conferences. 

Tax Day (July 15) is one of Sylvia Shirk’s favorite annual events because it gives her the opportunity to stand on her Anabaptist faith as a war tax resister. Read more in her blog, “If you pray for peace, why pay for war?” http://mennoniteusa.org/menno-snapshots/why-pay-for-war/

Save the date! Mennonite Church USA will be hosting Race, Church and Change, Part 2, a churchwide discussion on the impact of racism on the church and meaningful approaches for dismantling it. Follow MC USA on Facebook for registration details. https://www.facebook.com/MennoniteChurchUSA/

In her blog “Justice Fund, policing and protesting,” Iris de León-Hartshorn, associate executive director for Operations for Mennonite Church USA, provides guidelines for congregations that want to engage in peacemaking to dismantle racism.  http://mennoniteusa.org/menno-snapshots/justice-fund/

The African American Mennonite Association, a constituency group of Mennonite Church USA, has called upon fellow Mennonite congregations to address racism. http://mennoniteusa.org/news/aama/

Pick Up the Trash in Your Community

Go outside and pick up trash. You can invite a friend or small group from church to join you. You can enjoy fellowship and increase the amount of garbage collected.
