Greetings at the midpoint of the summer,

I’ve had a busy but truly blessed summer thus far. I pray you have also. This will be a brief message from me this month with just two parts:

First, I invite you to a book discussion that I’ll be facilitating toward the end of the summer.  I hope to see many of you on Wednesday mornings.

Second, we will have a comprehensive update to our church directory out this month. I hope you’ll take a look at it and help with any final corrections and updates.

One aspect that Carolyn Wilderman has worked especially hard at with Diana is on our membership data. Thank you, Carolyn. Now I know to whom I should be extending an invitation of membership!

Well, enjoy a blessed second half of the summer. See you in church!!

Peace & Joy
Pastor Bob

A Book Discussion
at 10:00-11:30 on Wednesdays August 29-September 19 Moultonborough Public Library
 I recently read the book, The Anatomy of Peace. I feel that its message is extremely important for our day and that it is not only the best book written on the topic, but that it’s also very well written.

“Thankfully, it’s not a college textbook and it’s not political. It’s simply real, really accessible, and a joy to read!”

I will facilitate a 4-week book discussion to be held on Wednesdays from 10 to 11:30 AM in the Moultonborough Public Library. Books will be available from the library. Otherwise, they may be ordered in paper or as e-books from Amazon.

Very few people actually want to be in conflict! Yet, conflicts are inevitable. We each have differing wants, desires, and ways that we would prefer things to be. This opens the door to conflict. The challenge, then, is how to handle conflict in a peaceful and constructive
way that maintains and even strengthens the relationship.

Through a moving story of parents struggling with conflicts with their own children, we learn the way to transform our thinking and  approach to personal, professional, and even global conflicts. This is not a recipe book, but a discussion about the way we humans are and how we can be. It’s a book that offers hope where we need it most.

Come to discuss, come to share, come to learn, and come to meet someone new.
