Dear <<First Name>>, 

We started our conversation about faith last week by talking about doubt. I quoted Frederick Buechner, who calls doubt the "ants-in-the-pants" of faith, the thing that keeps your faith growing and moving.

This week, we'll expand our theme of "Beyond Belief" by talking about faith requiring decision. Even if you still have doubts, you can choose to act in faith and follow Christ.

We'll be looking at the story of Jesus appearing to the disciples in Galilee after the resurrection, where he directs them to cast their fishing net on the other side of the boat. We don't know what their belief was at that moment, but they acted in faith and threw the net into the sea as directed--which resulted in a miraculous catch of fish.

Join us Sunday for more reflections on the meaning of faith.

Congregational Meeting June 9 to adopt new Articles of Association, a critical next step in changing status to become a full UK charity and a US/UK foundation. An open conversation on the new charity status, rules, Articles of Association and changes to our church governance will be held on Sunday, May 12, after worship. Please review the materials, bring your questions on May 12 and attend on June 9 to vote on the final Articles.
UPDATE: Traffic patterns have changed. Tottenham Court Road is now open to two-way traffic, so look carefully when crossing the street. Buses that used to travel south on Gower Street now drop off and pick up passengers directly on Tottenham Court Road.

Pavement works in front of the church will hopefully have concluded by Sunday, but there may still be extensive fencing. The best way to approach is from Goodge Street. Barriers may be in place, sidewalks narrow, and access to be more complicated that usual, though the church will remain open throughout the works.

The bus stop has temporarily relocated in front of Caffe Nero next door, but patterns continue to change. Public transportation remains the best way to access the church during the road works.
