Why consider Christian Simplicity during Lent, 2018?
Get together with a small group of folks to pray, reflect on readings from the book, Christian Simplicity, take responsibility to care for God’s creation and embrace Gospel justice. The topics focus on attitudes within the modern mindset that distract us from caring for our spiritual welfare, our relationships, and God’s creation.
In a society that enjoys such unprecedented prosperity and abundance, why is there so much personal unhappiness and discontent? Simplicity is surely a Gospel value for our time. It is the path to a life that protects creation, promotes justice, and nurtures spiritual fulfillment. We are called not just to believe in Christ, but also to follow Christ by embodying the values of Jesus.
This book encourages us to move from being unthinking consumers to responsible citizens who see the connection between our lifestyle and our faith. Simplicity entails learning how to consume in a manner that protects God’s creation and embraces Gospel justice.

Living Well with Diabetes
Our parish registered nurses, Remy, Mary, and Beth are excited to announce that we are beginning a new program in 2018 called Living Well with Diabetes.
If you are diabetic or borderline diabetic, we would love to have you join us for this free 6-week workshop. We especially encourage any of our former Living Well participants who may be diabetic to join us, as we will be using the same workbook as before.
Anyone in the community is welcome to attend this workshop in the Steinhausen Center;
Sundays from 1:15 p.m.-3:30 p.m., Jan. 21 through Feb. 25.
The Tri-City Food Pantry counts on volunteers to make sure our Papillion, La Vista and Ralston neighbors do not go hungry in their time of need. Volunteers can work both day and evening shifts while the pantry is open to clients. When you give your time, you get back something amazing in return: the feeling that you are helping families who need it.
