Update Now
CHPC Wednesday Lunch at 12 Noon, Starting June 10th

As an opportunity to stay connected in prayer, fellowship, and food, you are invited to join for a Zoom lunch on Wednesday, June 10th at 12noon. Roger will open with prayer and a blessing. After that, the conversation is up to you. As an attendee, make sure you’re muted while you chew. 🙂 Pro tip: Keep your mic muted and hold the spacebar to unmute your mic for any quick comments. Once you let go of the spacebar, you’ll go back to being muted.The focus is fellowship and not decision-making. Connect with others and enjoy a meal.

In Times of Crisis
Very often during times of crisis we wonder what, if anything, we can do. The new Dean of Louisville Seminary, Debra J. Mumford has started a Padlet (electronic bulletin board with active links) that showcases actions we are each able to take to help realize social justice in the world
https://padlet.com/dmumford2/6mlyz480kr9e1wrk.
Her posts include: 
Reminder to pray
Link to Louisville bill to ban No-Knock Warrants
Link to find Metro Council Members so you can email/call them to support the Bill to Ban No-Knock Warrants
Link to the Louisville Bail Project (people remain in jail often because they are too poor to bail themselves out)
Link to The Bail Project (national)
Link to ACLU Protester Rights page
Link to register to vote or register to receive an absentee ballot
Link to complete the 2020 US Census 
Add your suggestions of actions we can take or resources we can tap into to advance social justice in the world.
