May Friendship Day 2007 sponsored by Church Women United
The Church Women United celebration, May Friendship Day, is an annual event nationwide. This year, it is scheduled for 2 p.m. May 4 at Christ the Head Missionary Church, 845 E. Main St. Anne Sleet is in charge of the program, and Kittie Thomas is guest speaker. Women of all faith congregations are welcome.
The theme of the celebration is "Friends Under God's Wing," centering on the scripture Matthew 23:37. The program will present two aspects of friendship: the treasured longtime friends and the new friends one makes by intentionally reaching out to others. Emphasis will be on friendships bound together under the shelter of God's love.
The celebration also includes the annual gathering of pennies for Fellowship of the Least Coin, a worldwide movement now in service for more than 50 years.
Each woman participating prays regularly for peace and reconciliation in families, workplaces, communities, her nation and the world. When least coins are collected each year from women in countries around the globe, the coins amount to many thousands of dollars.
These moneys fund grants to alleviate women's hardships and thus promote reconciliation and peace in the world.
The Presbyterian Church to host national conference
Beginning Thursday, the Presbyterian Church of Danville will host its fifth "Godly Play National Teacher Accreditation Conference."
The conference will continue through Saturday afternoon and the 17 participants from four states and several denominations will be trained in the unique Montessori-based approach to religious education.
Leading the conference will be Lois Howard and Candy Moser, certified trainers who received training and certification from Jerome Berryman, founder of Godly Play in the early 1980s.
Howard, of Lexington, was minister of Christian formation at the Danville Presbyterian Church for three years and helped establish the Godly Play program at the church.
She now serves St. Raphael Episcopal Church in Lexington as an ordained deacon and minister of Christian formation. Moser is a regional Godly Play training consultant for the Southeast.
The Presbyterian Church of Danville has weekly Godly Play sessions for children ages 3 through fifth grade where it is hoped that "children develop a language which will form them into persons who understand the scripture and derive meaning for their lives," said Howard.
