All are invited to participate in the InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington’s Unity Walk, visiting houses of worship and other religious centers along Massachusetts Avenue in a public celebration of solidarity among different faiths and cultures in our community. More information about the walk is at www.ifcmw.org. Rock Spring has chartered a bus to and from the Unity Walk. To sign up for the bus, go to http://bit.ly/unitybus.

Everyone will have noticed by now a slow-down in the project. This is due to our main contractor, NKB, walking off the job on August 1 and informing us by letter that they could not complete the work.

On September 10 at 10:00 a.m., we will welcome guest preacher Rev. Sid Lovett for a service focused on peace and specifically the important work of the US Institute for Peace. Following worship, join together for a congregational lunch to catch up with the Rock Spring family after the summer.

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
