Interfaith Hospitality, August 12-18 -
Calling experienced dinner hosts! We are blessed to have several volunteers come forward recently who are new to this ministry. To help orient and support them, we are looking for experienced dinner hosts to "show them the ropes" by sharing groceries, meal planning and dinner host duties on the following evenings: Tuesday, Aug. 14, Friday, August 17, and Saturday, August 18. A "dinner drop off" is needed for Thursday, August 16, and a couple of openings for evening and overnight hosts still exist. Can you help? See Michelle in the Narthex or michelledeister@hotmail.com /503-930-7888.

Congregations Helping People (CHP) is in need of new volunteers to help with client intake services. CHP welcomes clients four days per week at First United Methodist (600 State St.). We offer two 3-hour shifts (9:00 am to Noon or Noon to 3:00 pm, Monday-Thursday).

Fish, stained glass, Sir Basil Spence, (1907-1976). Sir Basil Spence is most famously associated with his modern design for the rebuilding of Coventry Cathedral following its destruction by bombing during the Second World War. Building commenced for his competition-winning program in 1955, and by the time the new cathedral was consecrated in 1962 it had become an international symbol of regeneration and reconciliation.

The old cathedral in the historic center of Coventry was destroyed during an air raid in the Second World War. In 1951 Spence was chosen from over 200 architects who had entered a competition to design a new cathedral to replace it. Spence chose to keep the ruins of the old cathedral intact--the only competition entrant to do so--and link them to the new cathedral with a high porch. Mother Anne, Dr. Paul Klemme, and the Trinity Choir are currently on pilgrimage, and are scheduled to visit Coventry Cathedral on  Friday, July 27
