health care July 6


SCROLL DOWN

health care July 6


The U.S. Senate is voting on a bill that would take away the healthcare coverage of 23 million people over the next few years and limit the coverage of millions more.

 

If one thing is clear from the gospels, it’s this: Jesus cared about healing people. In fact, he encouraged his disciples to go out and heal the world.

 

If you would like to fight against this bill and for the access of many to healing, please join us on Thursday, July 6th, from 4:30-5:30 at the church to call senators from around the country.

 

It really is startling how important Jeesus’ healing ministry figures in to the gospel accounts.  Jesus cared about the sick and needy.  Shouldn't we?

 

The work of contacting legislators can continue after July 6th.  A church member can provide legislators' phone numbers and coaching on what to say. If you have questions, send an email to jofdisciples@gmail.com.

beer & big questions july 6


beer & big questions july 6


Join us on Thursday, July 6, 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the Tower Inn Cafe in Ypsilanti.  We're getting together for food, drinks, and conversation around the question, “Is there a difference between being morally right and legally right?”

 

Some people say breaking the law is immoral. Others may argue that some laws would be immoral to follow.  If you believe the second, what authority do you use to determine one from the other?

"Is there a difference between being morally right and legally right?"

 

If it’s your first time attending, your first drink is on the church. Join us on July 6th!

book discussion august 20


book discussion august 20


You're invited to join us on Sunday, August 20th at 12:00 to have a conversation about "The Third Reconstruction" by Rev. William Barber II's book.  It tells the story of his and his communities' struggle to fight for God's justice in 21st Century America.  

 

We will also touch on issues described in the book "Evicted" by Matthew Desmond, as we consider what role Journey of Faith may have to play in this movement.  You're encouraged to read both books over the summer months, but reading is not required to participate in the conversation.

 

Read the books and join the discussion group!
