June 27, 2023 Meeting Notes

The second meeting of the Brother Bird Liaisons took place on June 27, 2023 at 6:30pm. Please find the meeting notes below.

Jade Afadi, Outreach and Development Director opened the Zoom meeting by welcoming attendees to the second meeting of the Brother Birds Liaisons. Readings were presented by Janet Kopp, Board Secretary. In preparation for the meeting, the group was asked to ponder the two stories of Cain and Abel found in Geneses chapter 4 and the parable of the Good Samaritan found in Luke 10: 25-37. A lively discussion was had. Katie Mangelsdorf, C.S. shared wonderful inspiration centered around three words: communication, witness, participation. As Brother Birds, we need to cherish and practice these three words, especially in our relationships with fellow church members.
