The GGF News 3/2/2012

Does Suffering come with a Benefits Package?   This week I came across this quote- “True joy is not authentic unless achieved through pain” by Richard Rohr.  Can suffering produce joy?  That seems impossible.  How?  Does that mean that all suffering produces joy?  What do you think?  Join us this Sunday and share your thoughts.
If you would like to discuss any of these thoughts further- I would love to get together with you.

Ali Golz will be sharing about God’s faithfulness to her and her family.

at the Shrine of St. Francis in North Beach (Columbus @ Vallejo).  We hope to share a simple gathering that will inspire and connect those of us who love the city with its patron saint.   We purposefully chose the first Saturday of the month (March 3rd) from 5:00-6:00 p.m., so you can choose a place for dinner afterwards with friends you invite or meet.  Check out the attached flyer.

Sunday March 11th Dieter Zander will share his thoughts on Suffering.

Easter Celebration April 8th.  Plan now to join us for our traditional Easter Brunch.  Everyone is Welcome.
