…that the Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity invites you to participate in an Interfaith Pray-In and Fast for Gaza? At 10 am this Fri., May 31, you’ll gather with others at Senator Alex Padilla’s office (333 Bush St., San Francisco) fasting and in prayer to request a meeting with him to discuss a number of demands. Interfaith leaders are calling for a meeting with the Senator to discuss:
Establish an enduring and sustained ceasefire.

Secure the release of all hostages, including Israeli hostages held by Hamas and Palestinian hostages in the Israeli prison system.
End the occupation to pave the way for just a lasting peace.
Stop sending US weapons and military assistance to Israel to end US complicity.
Sign up here. If you cannot join in person, there are other ways you can participate: (1) Fast for Gaza: Select one or more days to fast during the week of May 27-31st. (2) Sign the Statewide Faith Letter: Add your voice to the call for ceasefire and halting US arms to Israel.

…that Arin Dahl, one of our ushers and deacons, is studying to be an ordained Animal Chaplain? She is currently working on her final project and would appreciate the chance to offer her developing skills to her church family. Services offered include grief support around the loss of companion animals, celebrations/memorials of life, animal blessings, adoption celebrations, and naming ceremonies. Services are offered in people’s homes (and perhaps virtually) and are free of charge, as she is not yet ordained. Please contact her at [email protected] if you have questions or to set up a meeting.
