We invite all of you to come and join us at St. John on Wednesday, June 6, for a showing of the documentary simply entitled “13.” The title comes from the 13th amendment to the US Constitution that outlaws slavery. The documentary, about two hours long, is a history of race relations in our country. Pastor Mytch Dorvillier, a native of Haiti and a member of our Eastern North Dakota Synod staff, will be with us and will moderate the evening for us.
We will begin with a potluck at 6:00pm in the fellowship hall; Pastor Mytch will lead us in a devotion at 6:45pm. We will view the documentary from 7:00 to 9:00pm and then have a time for questions. This sounds like a full evening, but we are excited about the opportunity to grow in our understanding of what presently is going on in our nation. This event is sponsored by our Social Concerns/Mission Committee as well as our Reconciling in Christ Committee.
