The Hopewell community gathered at the Hopewell United Methodist Church on Aug. 16 to stand together against hate and injustice at a Community Peace Vigil sponsored by the Hopewell Council of Churches. It was an evening of prayer, song and a candlelight vigil and march through the borough. Attendees heard messages from Pastor Kate, leaders of other Hopewell Borough churches, and the mayor.
Why do busy people sometimes place themselves last? Self-care is not about avoiding life’s storms, Pastor Kate reminds us. It’s about preparing for them. Pastor Kate references Matthew 14-22-33, in which Jesus (and briefly Peter) walk on water ion the midst of a storm.
