What's An Angry Quaker To Do?
Jim Mehler Preaching

No, I'm not a Quaker and I suspect you aren't either. So, "What's an angry Quaker to do?" The Quaker in question is Parker Palmer and he wrestled with the question in his book  On the Brink of Everything . In it, he asked a provocative question: "Does anger have a role to play in the life of someone who aspires to nonviolence?" Well, I  aspire  to nonviolence but hardly at the level or depth of a Quaker. In fact, my aspiration is often derailed by ... my anger.  

A friend of Palmer once gave him a tee shirt with "One Mean Quaker" printed on it. In light of the anger motif for Sunday, what would be written on our tee shirts? Let's work it out.

See you Sunday,
Jim

This summer our youth will be attending 
the Presbyterian Youth Triennium at Purdue U
This gathering is held every three years for high school age students and is five days that help form a younger generation of active Presbyterians. This is a life changing, life giving and faith growing gathering that shapes the leadership gifts and deepens the discipleship awareness for our youth. 

It is important that our youth are meaningfully involved in the life of our church and we have been working to increase this involvement. Our youth are sharing their gifts through the Youth Vocal Ensemble, Youth Instrumental Ensemble and are being trained as greeters, lay readers and ushers. Our youth care deeply about their church family and are committed to being an important part of church life on a regular and continual basis.

We are asking the congregation of Covenant Presbyterian Church to help sponsor this trip to Triennium and these experiences for our youth. We are hosting a sponsorship drive,  Pave the Way , where 100% of monies contributed will go to youth missions. Contributions can be made via check or Zelle through your bank using  giving@covenantpcusa.org  with the memo Youth Mission .

Please help us Pave the Way to send our youth to Triennium so they may strengthen their leadership skills and deepen their faith to be a strong presence in this church and this world. Contact: Erin Wise .
2019 Per Capita is $35.75 Per Member
Each member of Covenant is also a member of the larger church, the Presbyterian Church USA. As such, it is part of our responsibility to support the work of the administrative bodies of the national church – the General Assembly, the Synod, and the Presbytery. We do this by making a per capita payment each January. The per capita for 2019 is $35.75 per member, for a total payment due of $21,093. This figure is based upon our church membership roll as of Dec. 31, 2017. We invite you to pay your share of the per capita so that this money does not need to come from this year’s budget. Your contribution will free up funds for other vital church programs that meet the spiritual needs of our congregation. Envelopes are on the welcome table.  Click here to securely give online.
