September 22
Finding a Story Worth Living
Led by Rev. John Gordon, Baldwin Wallace University Chaplain
All of us are formed by multiple stories. The stories we allow to guide our lives make all the
difference as to whether we’re creating a truly good life for ourselves and others or one of
superficiality and harm. Discerning the difference is crucial!

September Focus Collection will benefit the Minister’s Discretionary Fund.  It is used to assist SWUU members and friends meet certain financial obligations, such as personal expenses in a time of need or even help pay for travel and registration fees for church-related meetings.  Please make a confidential appointment with Rev. Meg to apply for these funds.
An Invitation to Join Social Justice —  Want to learn more about our Focus Collections?  Do you have a little time to pitch in at the Urban Hope storefront or participate in another effort?  We meet in person for only 1 hour every other month but we get a lot done.  You would not have to come to meetings if you choose, but you CAN still be involved.  Please see a SJ member (Nancy, Jan, Debby, or Mary) to learn more.
