Greeting Friends,

Happy Monday, and happy Pentecost! I enjoyed being able to celebrate this festival with you on Facebook and with some red balloons dotting the Logan landscape. Thanks to everyone who sent in pictures, and a special thank you to Joan Mahoney who helped distribute balloons to mark the occasion!

Here are this week's updates from church:

Our liturgy for the Day of Pentecost is up on Youtube and the bulletin for that worship is attached to this email. 

These videos are also designed for sharing. If you would like to share them on Facebook, or send them to family and friends who may find the worship meaningful, please feel free to do so. 

We are beginning week 12 of our small group mid-week worship. We will continue this week with a Tuesday night gathering at 5pm and a Wednesday night gathering at 7pm. Please look for another email in you inbox today or tomorrow with more details. 

Finally, I wanted to address the news that came out of Minnesota last week. The news not only of George Floyd's death, but also of the riots and subsequent unrest has been devastating. In moments like this I often find myself wondering what I can do to help. If you find yourself asking the same question here is a list of organizations that could use your help:

Minnesota Freedom Fund is an organization that will pay bail for low-income folks who are being arrested during these protests, in the hopes that no one will have to languish in jail because they cannot afford to get out

Reclaim the Block aids Minneapolis area communities with community organized and led safety initiatives as well as advocating for law enforcement reform

Holy Trinity Lutheran Church is an ELCA congregation in South Minneapolis that has opened its doors to serve as a medic station and organizing site for clean up and rebuilding of businesses along Lake Street. Donations to the congregation will help them continue to support the local community. You can also designate donations toward a justice fund which is being shared among the congregations local community partners. 

If you are interested in learning more about the history of race relations, civil rights, and the struggle for racial equality in the United States, I would also urge you to take a look at this list. There are numerous books, articles, and films for your edification in this topic. 

Peace be with you, my friends. Have a good week and I'll see you on Zoom!

Pastor Emily
