Open Hearts Gathering May 19- A Lament over Amendment One’s passage, and a look to the future


In light of our state’s recent passage of this very harmful amendment, we will make some time to lament all the losses that will result from it at our next Gathering- Saturday, May 19, 6:30 PM, within the loving arms of at New Hope Baptist Church‘s facilities, at 2024 Redbud Rd. in Gastonia (on the corner of Redbud and S. New Hope Rd.). Please join us as we exercise, and exorcise, our sadness over this establishment of blatant bigotry in our state’s constitution, that violates the basic human dignity of all children of God. We need your tears, too!

We’ll also make time, as planned, for our annual discernment, of who we are as a community, where we’ve been, and where we’re headed next into The Future with this (g)Go(0)d(s) that is madly in Love with us! Such questions will be discussed:

What have we done so far- that you’ve enjoyed? that you haven’t? that you want to continue doing? that you don’t?
Where do we go from here? What should OHG do, and be about, into our future together?
What will/could/should OHG look like next year? 5 years from now? 10 years from now?
What else have you been pondering, thinking, meditating upon these past several months that we’ve been together?

So please think, pray, and meditate upon these questions, and bring your own thoughts and contributions on the 19th.
RSVP at our Facebook event page, and contact me if you need any other information. Thanks, friends, I look forward to seeing you there!

Pax,

-Pastor -D
