And to Think That We Thought
We'd Never Be Friends by Mary Hoberman
Poet and picture book author Mary Ann Hoberman takes on quarreling and its consequences, and shows how turning fighters into friends leads to greater peace. It all starts with a fighting brother and sister, who make up with the help of another sibling. By the end of this optimistic picture book, the whole world is united in friendship.

Hennepin Church sponsors two Guatemalan students – a 6-year-old girl, Ana, and a 14-year-old boy, Josué, through the Minnesota non-profit Common Hope. Our sponsorship helps Ana and Josué gain an education by supporting the education, healthcare, housing, and family development programs received through Common Hope.

Part of our relationship is to encourage Ana and Josué by corresponding with them. Hennepin’s Outreach Committee assures that the students receive letters quarterly and would love it if your child might wish to develop a relationship of support and care with these students. Spanish language skills are not required, but a student in a Spanish Immersion school might be particularly interested, as they are more than welcome to write letters in Spanish. All correspondence is via email through Common Hope. Photos, drawings and letters are all accepted. Please contact Kimm Schneider at 612kimmschneider@gmail.com or call 612-889-3766 if interested. Gracias!
Being Anti-Racist:
Read, Learn, Act, Impact
Join a group of parents, grandparents, and other adults on Sunday evenings at 7:30 pm. We discuss great books, learn through conversation, and support each other as we take action steps to be anti-racist within our daily lives, all while trying to have an impact on the kids we love.
