Forum for All (previously known as Adult Forum)
The series ProFuture Faith: The Prodigal Species Comes Home has been quite a different look at what we may wish to consider when thinking about our faith traditions and how we live our lives in hopes of leading a life which reflects God’s love for us. Evolution of the species and the world in general has become something to consider going forward as well as how we treat this world that provides life and sustenance for us. It has stimulated some great conversation.
In addition, we had a special guest speaker 1/12, Apostle Jean Ngirwe – a resident of Spencer, WI who, with his wife survived the horrors of war in the Congo. He and his wife Eva, make a missionary trip to Uganda yearly to assist the people there to be able to obtain a basic education, learn ways to be self-supporting and learn more about the Love of God. His organization, “Void Filling Empowerment” needs assistance with their mission: “We’re a God-dependent, holistic ministry serving globally by filling spiritual and physical voids to empower each life for greater sustainability”. For more information, check their website www.thefillers.org, or contact email@example.com.
Going forward we will continue to discuss a variety of topics in the weeks to come. Please feel free to join us when you are able:
