All Meeting Reads Book Study


Beginning in March, anyone who would like to join the meeting's book study will be supplied with Quaker Phillip Gulley's book, If God is Love, (may be a reused one). Here is a short preview:


​If God is love, why are so many Christians fearful, and why do so many church leaders sound hateful? Two controversial pastors address issues the church won′t face, calling us to restore grace as the center of the Christian life.

Being the Church


 There is the idea that many people 'go' to church, but taking Jesus' teachings a step further and making life better for our neighbors (Jesus' second greatest commandment) is what we like to refer to as 'being the church'.


This past Sunday, the Humans For Racial Justice group, sponsored by our Peace and Social Concerns committee, planned and carried out a food drive to honor the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and his actions for racial justice. West Branch folks should feel really good about the response of donations! Thanks to Jim, Kathleen, Gwen, and Beth for organizing and spending the afternoon at the city hall gathering collections. Since the West Branch food bank was well stocked, now many Iowa City families will also be blessed with these items when they come to the CommUnity food bank there!
