St. Peter’s neighbors series continues

February 11, 2016
Westfield Republican

"Who is my neighbor?"

The law of God says we are to love our neighbors as ourselves. An expert in the law asked Jesus, "Who is my neighbor?" Luke 10:29. Jesus answered that question with a story about an outsider, someone whose faith practices were different.

This Lenten Season, St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Westfield is providing an opportunity to get to know our neighbors. The activities begin each Thursday night at 5:30 in the church. We will start with a Service of Evening Prayer, in the Traditional Anglican style (come get to know us); followed by a pot luck supper.

The following programs will begin at 7 p.m. in Bailey Hall. The church is located at 12 Elm St. in Westfield. No registration or fee is required and all are welcome.

- Feb. 11: Our Muslim Neighbors Sam Qadri, presenter

- Feb. 18: Our Jewish Neighbors Jay Kallor, presenter

- Feb. 25: Our Buddhist Neighbors Sheridan Smith, presenter

- March 10: Our Amish Neighbors Sarah Price, presenter

- March 17: Our Seneca Neighbors Marilyn Anderson, presenter. In the place of Evening Prayer, this evening will begin at 5:30 with music by the Seneca Singers. Join us to hear hymns sung in the Seneca language and learn to sing a familiar hymn in this beautiful tongue which is in danger of being lost forever.

On March 3 at 7 p.m. there will be a presentation at our Diocesan Center on our Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry's book, "Songs my Grandma Sang," which describes how his Christian faith was formed by the African American tradition of hymn singing. All are welcome to this event. The Diocesan Center is located at Brighton Ave. Tonawanda.
