For all who are interested in supporting and planning for peace and good in our world:

 On the first wednesday of every month, Mario will be leading a time around a table to talk about, plan, and seek to do the good of Jesus in the community. Somewhere in the world someone is sitting at a table, planning to do evil and violence to their community and beyond – this is our opportunity to stand for good and plan to do good. Come and join us!
