Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: “Rulers and elders of the people! If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a cripple and are asked how he was healed, then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. He is the stone you builders rejected, which has become the capstone. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we may be saved.

Anatomy of Peace
Our speaker this Sunday is Allan Kennedy, RUMC Lay Leader. His topic is “Anatomy of Peace”. We always enjoy Allan’s lessons.
Book: the Anatomy of Peace What if conflicts at home, conflicts at work, and conflicts in the world stem from the same root cause? What if we systematically misunderstand that cause? And what if, as a result, we systematically perpetuate the very problems we think we are trying to solve? Every day.
We are thankful for our CUC refreshments each week. This week they will be provided by Bonnie White, Mary Kay Mills, and Betty & Larry Hunt
