Rich Meyer, Guest preacher
Sunday, February 17
Rich Meyer (Millersburg IN) has been the navigator for four groups following the Trail of Death, the 1838 deportation of Potawatomi from Indiana following their final land cession. Through these he has learned to know Potawatomi historians, artists, cooks and tribal leaders, and assists Mennonite institutions in building connections with Potawatomi resource people.
Rich will also join in the Sunday school class discussion on “Dismantling the Doctrine of Discovery”.
All women are invited to the home of Sheryl Dyck to share a meal and hear stories from Rebecca Moyer’s cross-country bike ride.
