Bulletin 07.05.2019
Silverton to join Sierra-Cascades

At a meeting for worship through business last Sunday, Silverton Friends Church approved joining Sierra-Cascades Yearly Meeting of Friends. The recording clerk, Erin Wilson, offered the following for context:

“After a threshing meeting regarding affiliation with SCYMF, several SFC members attending SCYMF annual sessions, and other discussions that have taken place, SLC recommends that we affiliate with SCYMF.... Silverton Friends Church approves joining SCYMF. Approved.”

A central truth
in the Kingdom—
the greatest is the one
who serves.

Like a sea,
the streams pour into it.
Its greatness
comes from its low position.

When we bow,
offer friendship,
nurture the little ones,
welcome the stranger—
when we serve others,
we become great
in the Kingdom.

Jim Teeters in Because of This
