On Wednesday we kicked off our WWE@Ridge (Wonderful Wednesday Evenings at Ridge). We had 60+ stay for dinner and around 100 for the programing part. What a week! And to top it off Bob Birgel who writes a bi-weekly column for the Northwest Indiana Times newspaper had a great article about WWE. Check it out: http://www.nwitimes.com/articles/2007/08/29/community/rop/doc2d7beafc35619c0a86257345005a573c.txt
I am excited about the series that we are in the midst of: Being a Good Neighbor. Rabbi Stevens of Temple Beth-El will be with us on Wednesday night to help us better understand how we can be better neighbors with our Jewish sisters and brothers. The following weeks will will have representatives from the Hindu community and the Islamic community to help us as week seek to be good neighbors. You can follow our sermons from this series by going to www.ridgeumc.org/sermons.html.
I love living in such a diverse community --- having people of other faiths live in community with me is a blessing!
