Religion points to that area of human experience where in one way or another man comes upon mystery as a summons to pilgrimage. - Frederick Buechner
Join other Presbyterians from 7:30 a.m. to 12 noon for a morning of advocacy training, issue briefings, a photo with Governor Deal, and meetings with your representatives. Hear Reverend Shelli Latham of Druid Hills Presbyterian Church offer a word of prayer to open the day in the House of Representatives. We will gather at Central Presbyterian Church for coffee, networking, and legislative updates then walk across the street to the Capitol for guided visits and meetings with your legislators! This event will be inspiring, informative, and a meaningful way for you to get involved. Register today at www.p4bg.org. 

This Sunday, you will see Lenten banners hanging in our sanctuary. The description below describes the artist's use of color to depict Lent's 40 days.
Lenten Banner #1 entitled "Hand in Hand Amidst the Journey,"symbolizes the beginning of Lent with the unsettled turmoil brought on by the anticipation of where Lent will lead us: the issues of life, questions, cares, and deep sighs of the soul along with the story of Jesus' death stir us deeply. The batik fabrics in shadings of maroon, gold, rust, and burgundy give visual representation to the thunderstorm of emotions that come with Lent.
Lenten Banner #2 entitled "Labor Along the Journey," symbolizes the last few weeks of Lent. Our internal thunderstorm has subsided, we approach the end of Lent and though many questions and concerns linger, the peace of Christ walks with us the rest of the journey. The work or labor continues but the reassurance of the Holy Love of God through Jesus gives us comfort. The batik fabrics in shades of blue, gold, and rust represent the calming and comfort of God as we come to the last few weeks of Lent.
Morningside is participating in the 2018 Hunger Walk/Run, and we hope you'll join our team. Not only will we have a great time, we'll impact hunger in our community! The money we raise will help our neighbors in need, and the need is great! More than 1 in 4 Georgia children live in a home where hunger is a regular worry. Join or Donate to our Team here.
