Weekly Words - 4/13/17

Hello First Baptist Church of Denver Family & Friends:

I trust this Holy Week is unfolding in good ways for you. While our building’s weekly schedule has been a bit less busy, there has remained significant activity nonetheless. On Wednesday this week, we were honored to host The Colorado Council of Churches, The Interfaith Alliance, Denver Seminary, Iliff School of Theology, and Regis University as leaders from these institutions met to plan for ongoing interfaith dialogue opportunities for folk throughout Metro-Denver.

Also, on Wednesday evening a group of FBCD representatives met with First Unitarian Society of Denver, American Friends Services Committee, and the Metro-Denver Sanctuary Coalition to determine next steps making FBCD a sanctuary congregation for an individual who is currently at risk of being deported. More information about this opportunity will be available soon.

As we turn from the events of this week to remember the central events of our Christian tradition...I trust that your Holy-day weekend will be good. If you’re traveling, know that a candle will be lit for you. If you’re in town, know that it will be wonderful to see you Easter morning, 10:30. Consider who you can encourage to attend service at FBCD this week. They’ll be glad you did!

With hope for today and tomorrow,

First Baptist Church of Denver is a welcoming and affirming, inclusive Christian community that embraces diversity, engages personal faith, and serves with compassion.
