Prayer Shawls Available for Congregation and Loved Ones

    “Grief and resilience live together” -- Michelle Robinson Obama

Edgehill Knitters continues to place hand knitted and sometimes crocheted Prayer Shawls on the prayer rail in the Big Room.  As we create the shawls, we pray for the person who will wrap themselves in the shawl, asking God for healing, for wholeness, for shalom, for that person's highest good.  We welcome you to pick up a prayer shawl for yourself or for a loved one who needs healing and pray that it will be a blessing as you build resilience. 

 

 

This Sunday, April 14 we have three opportunities for you to participate in a small group. We have already had 30 Edgehillians participate in a listening group and it has been fun! 


1.) During the Sunday school hour in the Cobb-Falk Room hosted by Liza Ramage. Members of the visioning planning team will be there to help her facilitate multiple groups if we have a lot of people... please come! 
The other two are immediately following the late service.
2.) Hosted by Ben and Andrea Edwards in the conference room of the church office building (1416 Edgehill).
3.) Hosted by Phil Michael Thomas. (Cobb/Falk Room)

 

 

Edgehill UM Women Program - Sunday May 19, 2019, 12:30 p.m. in the Cobb/Falk Room.  Bring your own bag lunch. Drinks and dessert provided. Childcare provided.

 

Our program is THE WOMEN  FOR TENNESSEE’S FUTURE  Presenter: WTF Board Member, Jessica McDuffie-Massey. Women for Tennessee's Future (WTF) is dedicated to electing progressive, pro-choice women to office at the local and state levels in TN. WTF is a statewide political action committee (PAC) that was founded in Nashville and raises money to support progressive women who are running for office across the state. In 2018, we endorsed 25 women running for office, of which seven were elected.

 

Don Johnson on death row is scheduled to be executed next month!  Please continue to write Gov. Bill Lee to let him know that Don is not the same person that killed his wife so many decades ago! We believe in redemption and reconciliation. Don's own daughter has forgiven him and putting him to death just causes more suffering for a family that has suffered enough. To learn more about Don's story click on this link to his website:   www.faithforgivenessredemption.com

 

May is National Foster Care month. Join us weekly in May during Sunday School hour (9:30-10:30) in the Cobb-Falk Room as Molly Wilson teaches a series on issues relating to kids in foster care.
