Munch Lunch Bunch
Munch Lunch Bunch’s August finger food lunch was preceded by an energetic and wide-ranging session with staff members who helped with the plea:  “Help!  My Smart Phone Is Smarter than I Am!,” resolving a number of small techno-communication problems with patience and much laughter.
Next Munch Lunch Bunch:  Thursday, Sept 20, 11 am to 1 pm, Great Hall, CLC.  For more information, contact Barbara Matt 314-968-1465, mattrhbg@aol.com

Welcome New Member, Maggie!

Maggie Gann has been and done a lot of different things in the course of her life.  She was raised on a farm near Springfield, Missouri, where her family still lives and raises beef cattle.  Maggie studied music and medieval history at Drury University and theology at Boston University.   Between her undergraduate and graduate degrees, she worked doing accounts receivable, first leading a team that made collection phone calls, and then leading a team that managed national advertising contracts.  Until recently Maggie served as solo pastor of a small church, and she is currently listening for the next thing to which God is calling her.  Maggie likes reading, hiking, wine, music, sustainable agriculture and community-driven food practices, ethics, ecumenism and inter-religious dialogue, hanging out with her niblings (nieces and nephew), the epic dramas of HBO, and the newsy stylings of John Oliver.  She believes we are all creative, no matter what we were told in school, and that our creativity and diversity reflect what it means to be made in the image of God.
