~ Conversation Wednesday this week ~

the urban mill on michigan avenue ~just east of College on the north side of the road

conversation leader: Joy Prior of Franklin Farm

Franklin Farm is a developing intentional community in an urban neighborhood of Grand Rapids. The residents/members, seek to joyfully care for one another, love the neighborhood and the neighbors, and share resources in order to live more sustainably. Our first project together, beyond getting to know one another, will be transforming the adjoining yards into a shared, food producing garden.

The best of two great things. A number of us involved with e.w.m. are also involved with a local non-profit - Kenya Matters. We want you to join us on Friday night, March 20th for a great night of wine tasting, learning more about Kenya Matters, and a bit of fundraising. Please join us!

Wednesday, March 25th ~ Lectio Divina ~ @ St. Marks ~ 10 a.m.

If you have never experienced lectio, consider taking 40 mintues of your day to focus on the biblical text with a group of people who are following Jesus.

It's not a difficult practice; it won't make you uncomfortable. Our time together will simply center you on the biblical text.

~ When you arrive at the gate, push the speaker button and let the receptionist know that you are with the emergent west michigan people. She'll gladly let you into the parking lot.

St. Marks is located at 134 Division Ave N, Grand Rapids, MI 49503. You should join us; it is one of the oldest public buildings in Grand Rapids, and it is absolutely beautiful.
