You are invited to participate in events being organized in Arlington in conjunction with a national Stand Against Racism movement initiated by the YWCA. Stand Against Racism began in 2008 to raise awareness that racism still exists in our communities and that it cannot be ignored or tolerated. Our goal in Arlington is to unite as one community in order to celebrate diversity, raise awareness that racism and all forms of prejudice still exist, and silence the voices of those who promote hate. Please come to any or all of
these free community events, and pass this information along to other interested individuals or groups. See the listing below: (more…)
On Sunday, May 2nd, the Youth Group will be participating in Project Bread’s 2010 Walk for Hunger. The need is urgent and we hope that you will support us!
This is our second Walk for Hunger! We plan to have more participation and walk more miles this year. We also hope to raise more donations for this important cause. Please consider donating to our team, or to one of us individually, to help us reach our goal, and to help our hungry neighbors.
Here is a direct link to the Calvary Arlington Youth Group Team page. Youth group members will also be collecting donations before the walk.
Together, we can truly make a difference in the lives of hungry people.
Among the treasures and artworks on display in the Hammond Castle in Gloucester is a very interesting woodcarving. It was created in Germany in the 1400′s. It is a picture of Jesus and his disciples, all ten of them. . . ??!! . . . that’s right there are two missing from the picture. Guess which two they are? . . .
Along with Judas, the disciple Thomas is simply omitted by the woodcarver as if he never existed – the 15th century equivalent of airbrushing or photoshopping, I guess! Not a great thing, I would say, to be classed alongside Judas and written out of history. . .
